The wines of Germany & Austria are expressive of a climate, culture and history emblematic of these two unique countries. They focus on remarkable signature white varietals like Riesling and Grüner Veltliner, and equally underrated native red varietals. This 4-part class series travels along the many rivers that make up these exquisite wine regions, and we will explore the culture & wines as we mosey along.
***PLEASE NOTE: Final class is on a TUESDAY***
Class 1: Germany Part I – Thursday, November 5th
Riesling is the iconic grape and wonderful wine Germany is known for, but other varieties sparkle as well.
This class we explore the beautiful wine regions of the Mosel, Rheingau & Rheinhessen.
Class 2: Germany Part II – Thursday, November 12th
While Riesling is definitely the queen, Pinot Noir – or ‘Spätburgunder’ – is the ravishing red that is gaining momentum.
In this class we cover the wine regions of Nahe, Pfalz & Baden.
Class 3: Austria I – Thursday, November 19th
Heading down the Danube we begin with the remarkable varietals of the Wachau & Northern Austria.
Journey to this beautiful area and learn to appreciate these exquisite wines even more!
Class 4: Austria II – TUESDAY, November 24th
The unique reds of Austria are remarkable and distinct, though often overlooked.
This class we explore the southern regions of Styria and the indigenous red grapes of Austria.
