The battle to get our community to enjoy rose has been won! I am on to the next challenge, which is German estate Riesling. The challenge seems to be that many people think that all German Riesling is sweet… WRONG.
Come see for yourself (or taste rather)!
In addition, this week I have the pleasure of my daughter, Emily, joining me for the Parker and Otis tasting. She will be visiting me from New York for a father-daughter weekend. It’s going to be a beauty!
Emily and I will be at Parker and Otis from 4 to 6 pm this coming Friday May 9th. We are going to be pouring a German Riesling that I love this week!
What do I love about Spater Veit? It is affordable (less than $20 a bottle). It is low alcohol – which makes a great lunchtime wine or you can have a glass or 2 before dinner. It is also a fabulous food wine! This Riesling will go well with all of the foods you want to eat when the weather is warm. This wine comes from a small estate. Their farming practices are headed in the right direction – meaning they are sustainably farming their vines. Heinz and Silvia Welter farm 18 acres around Piesport, a village on southwestern Germany’s Mosel River.
