Wines of Germany will be launching their very own TasteLive.com events page, and to celebrate they will be kicking it off with a redux of the on-line live tasting that we’d originally scheduled for the end of October.
I’ll be your blogger co-host for the on-line tasting, which will take place at 8PM ET / 5PM PT on December 3rd. This event is gonna be good – both upstate New York’s House of Bacchus and Manhattan’s Roger Smith Hotel will be hosting tweet ups for the event, and the wines are all kick-ass Rieslings from four of Germany’s premier Riesling-producing regions.
These wines all do a great job of representing their place of origin and how the terroir of those areas impact the final flavors of the wine produced there (they’re probably the next best thing to being there yourself):
Selbach-Oster, Riesling, Kabinett, Mosel, 2007/2008
Leitz, Riesling, "Eins Zwei Dry," Rheingau, 2008
Dönnhoff, Riesling, Nahe, 2008
Darting, Riesling, Durkheimer Nonnengarten, Kabinett, Pfalz, 2008
Join me on Dec 3rd, get the word out, and don’t forget to RSVP at TasteLive.com.
