Inspired by the Rieslingfeier in NYC and the La Paulée Burgundy events all over the world, we wanted to organize something similar in Germany and now it's happening. Our event is called Riesling SWAG, it's a Bring Your Own Bottle Riesling event, it will take place at VLET in der Speicherstadt, a fine-dining restaurant, and the following producers of fine German Riesling will take part in it:
From the Mosel and Saar: Egon Müller Scharzhof, Forstmeister Geltz-Zilliken, von Othegraven, Joh. Jos. Prüm, Schloss LieserFrom the Pfalz: Koehler-Ruprecht, Dr. Bürklin-WolfFrom the Rheingau: Peter-Jakob KühnFrom Rheinhessen: Wittmann Wagner-StempelFrom the Nahe: Gut Hermannsberg The wine service will be done by 11 sommeliers from all over Germany. VLET in der Speicherstadt will serve a five-course Northern German inspired menu and we hope to have lots of great bottles of Riesling on the table. You can find more information and ticketing info on our website: riesling-swag.com. I'd be delighted to meet some members of this forum in person at this event. As said, it's a non-profit event. If there is any money left in the end, we will donate it to a homeless shelter called Cafée mit Herz and to Médécins sans Frontières. If you have any questions or need help in organizing your trip, I'm happy to assist.
