Cost: Free - NO RESERVATION NECESSARY


Wines from the Rhine and Mosel River Valleys  by Marty Cook

 

The German wine industry marches to the beat of a different drum. Their wine classifications, wine styles and intimidating wine labels with lots of words sporting umlauts over various vowels can be confusing at best. But, the industry has a very long and rich tradition stemming back to the days of the Roman Empire and their wines are delicious and memorable.

 

One of the most salient features of the German wine industry are the river valleys where the vineyards grow. The water from the rivers warms the vines during harsh winters and keeps the grapes cool during summer nights. Two of the most prominent river valleys are the Rhine and the Mosel, which bring us many popular wines where the principal grape is Riesling. This grape is used to make a number of exciting, crisp, citrusy white wines that range from dry to sweet.

 

Want to explore some of these new and exciting wines? Grab a bottle of wine from the Rhine or Mosel and join us for this segment of Wine Wednesday on September 29th at 7:00 pm Eastern Time on the Zoom link below. Also, please send photos of the front and back labels of your bottle to WineCat@pa.net by 11pm Tuesday evening for inclusion in our weekly PowerPoint slide show.

 

We look forward to seeing you on this next Wine Wednesday on September 29th at 7:00 pm Eastern/New York time on the Zoom link below!
