Rieslings Dry & Sweet
From Four Countries,
Saturday, July 27th
Trapp Family Lodge Wine Cellar
Arguably the most spectacular of all white wine grapes Riesling is not very well known in the U.S.A. My wife for one categorically dismisses sweet wines, a vestigial response I’m afraid to the old white zinfandel mania in our fair country. Rieslings are sometimes dry though most of the time they have some sweetness which in the good examples is balanced by a crisp acidity. We will taste both dry and sweet versions.
We’ll be tasting Rieslings from Austria, France, Germany and the USA.
Hope you can make it.
Price is $20. Please call or see the front desk to place reservations. 802 253-5742. Doors open @ 4:00. I suggest you arrive no later than 5:00 to avoid feeling rushed. People come and go during the tasting which is an informal walk around format. We end at 6:00
