RIESLING REFRESH

Please join Spec’s fine wine buyer Bear Dalton on Monday, August 1st at 7pm for Riesling Refresh. We’ll beat the heat as we dig into refreshing Riesling with look at fourteen Rieslings all from Germany – the spiritual home of Riesling – that represent a variety of the non-dessert (which is to say table or food friendly) refreshing 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. Bread and a selection of fine cheeses will accompany the tasting.
