We love Riesling for being beautifully transparent of its soils, deeply communicating a sense of place through a variety of styles. Using that spirit of discovery, Wheeling Forward and Justin Christoph have hosted two walkaround Riesling grand tastings with a third planned for this August. In this more intimate, sit-down tasting seminar, we will focus on exploring various Dry Rieslings from top single-vineyard sites of outstanding producers in New York, Oregon, Germany, Austria and Alsace. Tickets are $45 and 100% of proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Wheeling Forward and will be a featured part of Yannick Benjamin’s Wine on Wheels Week of events.
The following wines will be enjoyed:
2014 Barry Family Cellars Riesling, Sheldrake Point Vineyard
2015 Brooks Riesling, Orchard Fold Vineyard
2015 Immich Batterieberg, Riesling Escheburg
2013 Von Winning, Riesling Trocken, Deidesheimer Paradiesgarten
2015 Schloss Gobelsburg, Riesling Gaisberg
