Riesling Week began Monday July 26th. For one week only tastings of world-class European Rieslings are being held at top restaurants and retailers in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Las Vegas and Miami. This Friday July 30th Riesling Week is coming to K&D Wines & Spirits for a FREE In Store tasting of several excellent Rieslings. The tasting begins at 4 PM and will end at 7 PM.
Rieslings are distinctive for its elegance, firm acidity, complexity, longevity and versatility with food. It is known by sommeliers as one of the most food friendly wines in the world. Riesling is the only major white varietal, aside from Pinot Grigio, that has higher imported volume compared to domestic wines in the U.S. Over 60% of the world's supply of Rieslings are produced in Germany. Germany grows more than 50,000 acres of Riesling vines.
We hope you come in and join us Friday July 30th 4PM - 7PM and celebrate with us. We'll be tasting Dr. Loosen 2009, Alsace Domaines Schlumberger Les Princes Abbes 2006 among others.
