As many of our clients will already know, here at Wine Ark, we love Riesling. We love its capacity to match different foods and seasons, its freshness, its adaptability of style- sometime sweet, sometimes bone dry, its youthful vigour as well as its age-worthy grace. And of course we love its ability to show where it is grown so clearly- to indicate a sense of place better than almost any other variety.
So to celebrate this regal varietal, as well as the oncoming warmer weather, we decided to host a Riesling tasting- but not as you know it! For the first hour of the tasting, all wines will be served blind! Regions from all over the world will be represented, but these will be mixed amongst one another to show that Riesling is so much more than a one-dimensional, citrus-dominant acid-bomb. Over 30 wines from all corners of the globe will be opened, some from well-established houses and vineyards, others from tiny, unknown vineyards, but all showing the individual thumbprint of regional variation. This will be a truly exceptional experience
In addition to unlimited tastes of these wonderful wines, your ticket price also includes a complimentary Riedel Veritas Riesling Glass, which is the perfect way to see the subtle differences between wines, valued at $59.95.
