After the success of our first ever German wine tasting course in winter 2012, the Goethe-Institut London will be offering four new courses to discover the world of German viticulture. The courses will be open to anybody who is interested in German wines and would like to learn more about it. All courses will be held in English, so knowledge of the German language will not be required but could be of advantage.

Riesling in Germany's most important grape variety. Nowhere else in the world does Riesling produce such varied and unique expressions as in its home country. Mittelrhein, Rheingau, Mosel, Saar, Nahe and Pfalz all have their own style. How come they're all so different? After all, they're all German! We take a look at Riesling's characteristics and see how different soils, regions and climates affect its taste. Join me on a journey to modern, dry German Riesling regions.
