If you know anything about Germany as a wine region, you’ll probably know it’s famous for being the undisputed home of riesling, where it’s often referred to as the ‘king of grapes’.
It certainly lives up to its name: riesling’s natural sweetness, underpinned by racy acidity and fresh purity of fruit, is expressed perfectly when grown in vineyards close to the major rivers and tributaries that weave through Germany’s wine-producing areas. But although riesling is certainly ‘king’ in Germany, the production of German red wine is also on the rise, with spätburgunder (Germany’s name for pinot noir) fast becoming a must-try wine for Burgundy fans.
We’ll be showing many of Germany’s other wine highlights too at this informal walkaround event including unusual blends and crossings. We will also be joined by producers and representatives from top German wine estates who will be ready to offer their expertise and wisdom. Join us to learn more about this wonderful and often misunderstood winemaking country.
