Riesling World Tour New York and San Francisco, Sept. 13th and 15th, 2005

I've discovered, though lots of tastings and lots of chance encounters with fanatics and phobics alike, that either you're a German wine person, or you're not. I suppose there's one more category, too, and that's the people who don't know yet. If you happen to fall into that category, you could do worse than attending the Riesling & Co. World Tour, coming next week to a major metropolis near you.

In addition to major tastings at restaurants in San Francisco and New York, apparently there's a whole set of restaurants who, during this week, will be offering or at least highlighting German wines as part of their wine lists.

There's not a lot of information available about these tastings other than what little appears on this web site. The tastings include the usual trade and public sampling of wines, along with a food pairing seminary for those who are interested.

Hey Alder --
I'll be at the media/trade portion as a guest of my uncle (who is a wine distributor). Will I see you there?

Joy,

Not sure if I'm gonna make it to this event. I may only have enough time to go to the sake event which is the same evening.
