The noble white grape Riesling originates from the Rhine region in Germany. While many of you think German Riesling is always sweet, that is a mis-conception as more and more German Rieslings are being produced dry (trocken). With an upward trend in world-wide plantings, only behind Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, other regions like Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Washington are also producing world class Rieslings.

The grape has wonderful acidity (one of the reasons why it is great for producing sweet dessert wines), it also boasts great longevity and also has fabulous food pairing potential.

All these wonderful traits will be on display and discussed at our upcoming De-Mystifying German Riesling stand-up tasting, scheduled for Saturday, September 17 @ 7pm – $40. deVines has one of the best German selections in the country, and this is your chance to taste through eight wines that show terroir influences of various regions, as well as varying levels of ripeness and sweetness. You may never go back to a Chard again after this tasting!
