To help Germany’s Ahr wine region recover from the recent devastating flooding, a non-profit crowdfunding platform has launched where wine fans can donate and receive the only thing that wineries have salvaged from the disaster – mud-splattered but drinkable bottles of the finest wine. All donations are welcome but those from €50 to €750 will be eligible for anything from a  single bottle of top-tier wine to an entire cask – and everything in between. Named “Flutwein” the drive is being run by voluntary Ahr wine and hospitality groups that will distribute funds to wineries and restaurateurs when the drive has closed.
