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.

Riesling - arguably - is the best white grape variety in the world. It comes in an incredible amount of styles which we will introduce and explore here. From Rhine, Mosel and Pfalz across to Alsace and Austria and even further afield to New Zealand, Australia and Washington. We'll take a close look at how this German variety performs at home and abroad - dry or sweet and in all its scintillating breadth. We shall see if we can tell provenance by taste! In the end you'll know your Eden from your Erden!

While we will be tasting blind and really look at some nerdy Riesling issues, everyone can participate - if you've tasted wine before or not. We will make sure everyone gets the most out of this!
