Intrigued by Grüner Veltliner and want to learn more? Did you know that Grüner is one of the few wines that complement the notorious wine killers asparagus and artichokes? Come explore the wonderful, refreshing, food friendly white wines of Austria.


If you think all German wines are sweet, than this is the class for you. The range of German wines is about as diverse as the topography of the country. While known for their whites, Germany makes wines in all styles, colors and sweetness levels. The Alsace section of France borders on Germany and we will include some wines from Alsace as well. In this class, we will taste 6 fine wines and learn what makes them unique (soil, climate, grape variety, winemaking philosophy). We will talk about how to choose wines for consumption versus collection, the importance of vintages, and the best food to pair with the wines.
