Riesling - Wine Class at Via Girasole Wine Bar

Reisling…..wine author Stuart Pigott calls this grape ‘The Best White Grape On Earth’. Sommelier’s everywhere revere Riesling for its versatility; especially amazing dry styles that pair well with food. Exceptional off-dry, medium-dry, and luscious sweet styles also pair well with food, aperitif’s, and desserts. The universal misconception is that ALL Riesling wines are sweet! We’ ll address this misunderstanding and taste classic examples of each style to open-up your palate and your understanding of how each style is produced. Riesling is the hallmark grape of the Finger Lakes so we’ll compare FLX styles to classic Germen styles and reveal how world class Riesling exists right in our own back yard. In this class we’ll taste all styles from razor sharp dry to dessert style sweet to show off the amazing versatility of this wonderful grape.

Questions and observations are encouraged by our on staff Sommelier Mike Facik.
