If you're new to the Summer
of Riesling (SOR), it's a movement started in 2008 by Paul Grieco of
NYC's Terroir Wine Bar. They poured Riesling (and only Riesling) by the glass
for the entire summer as a way to get people to at least try this noble,versatile but often underrated grape. He was on to something because the SOR is now an international movement. We're excited to be a small part of it.
So if you're a Riesling skeptic, a devoted "Acidhound" and/or you like Riesling tatoos, this tasting is for you. There will not be a single blue bottle in the line-up.
