The Best of Dry Riesling!

Before the weather turns cold, and crisp white wines are still quenching our palates, lets do a little “re-visit” of some of the world’s best DRY Riesling wines. Yes – Riesling can be dry! I am not sure why it has retained its stigma of being sweet after all of these years, but this class will change all of that. For those of you who like dry wines and have not yet taken the Riesling ride, this one’s for you! The journey will include some of Riesling’s favorite homelands – Austria, Germany, Alsace (France), Australia, and of course – the Finger Lakes!

The Magic of Piemonte

“Piemonte” (or Piedmont), means “the foot of the mountains”. This is a perfect description of the beautiful province that catches the towering Alps as they roll from Switzerland into the northwestern corner of Italy. And the wines… oh, the wines! There are two major features affecting the weather in Piedmont: the chilly Alps and the warm Mediterranean. This little tug-of-war creates some very unique growing conditions for the vineyards. Join us as we take a virtual tour of this magical region and taste through its most worshipped whites and reds.
