Join us for a special in-store tasting seminar on Wednesday, August 25 featuring some of the best that Germany has to offer. We hear it all the time, “Isn’t all German wine sweet?” While Germany does produce some of the best sweet wines of the world, most of their wines are dry, with a great mix of outstanding sparkling, whites, rosés, and reds. Join us as we play not only the classics, but the deep cuts as well!
The seminar will be led by Wines of Germany Ambassador and Certified Sommelier Joe Kane. Joe will be conducting a 3 flight, 9 wine class. Here is a sneak peek!
Flight 1: We explore how Germany has adopted the vineyard classification of Burgundy with their Grosses Gewachs, or Great Growth wines, focusing on the premier grape variety of the country, Riesling. Bone-dry, ethereal, complex yet elegant, these wines will make you a believer as we explore classic regions such as the Mosel, Rheingau, and the Rheinhessen.
Flight 2: Next, we’ll delve into other white wines, starting with a German favorite, Sekt. Following the bubbles, we will explore how other white varieties – both native and Burgundian – found a home in Germany while tasting through terroir-driven Elbling and Grauburgunder from some of the region’s top producers.
Flight 3: Last but not least, we’ll end with a selection of reds. Hardly an afterthought, the red wines of Germany can be just as compelling as the whites. Sample brilliantly showcased staples of the region such as Spätburgunder and Lemberger.
Join us for this can’t miss event. Prost!
