Benjamin Hammerschlag’s family arrived in the States from Germany in the late 1800’s. His great-great grandfather married a young girl by the name of Flegenheimer and joined her family’s business as New York Wine Merchants. Established in 1876, Flegenheimer Bros dealt exclusively in quality beverages and was still flourishing in 1919 when the manufacture, transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages was outlawed in the United States through Prohibition.
Three generations later, the youngest Hammerschlag has decided to resurrect this heritage with wines of excellence from Australia.
To make his vision come true, Benjamin enlisted the talents of one of Australia's most renowned winemakers (and one of our favorites here at Taylor's) Ben Glaetzer.  “Loaded with brooding blackberry fruit and a dose of peppery clove-like spice, the 2017 Out of the Park Petite Sirah just noses out it Shiraz stablemate. It’s medium to full-bodied, with concentrated dusty tannins that linger on the finish, giving it enough structure to match grilled burgers or steak. - 90pts Parker's Wine Advocate"
