Wine Class: Trocken

Thursday, July 12   |   6:00 pm

Price: $55

Riesling – a grape oft maligned and misunderstood despite it having so many worthy qualities. Not all Rieslings are sweet, not all Rieslings are from Germany, not all Rieslings are paired with desserts. Due to all of these hardline misconceptions about this grape, not many truly are able to appreciate its otherworldly qualities that make it the darling grape of the wine world – and that includes top wine critics and professionals in the food world. From its juicy acidity that makes it very friendly with a wide variety of cuisines, to its lighter and ephemeral texture that makes it gulp-able, to it being the definition of ‘minerality’ in a bottle – it truly is a wonder why not many advocate for this grape as the perfect food wine. This class explores Riesling in its dry form – zero residual sugar – to understand the soul of this grape, it’s acid and mineral qualities.

$55 includes wine, tasting course, service fee and tax. Call 919.542.2121 for reservations.
