Please join Spec’s fine wine buyer Bear Dalton on Tuesday, September 1st at 7pm for REVEALING RIESLING. We’ll dig in with fourteen refreshing Riesling wines mostly from Germany – the spiritual home of Riesling – that represent a range of the non-dessert wine styles. We’ll talk about the Riesling grape, the places it grows, the techniques used to make it, and the food we eat with it. All the wines we’ll taste are intended for the table. While there will be plenty of fruit and some sweetness, these are food friendly wines to be drunk either as aperitifs or with food. The class will include bread and a selection of fine cheeses to accompany the tasting.
