MAINZ, GERMANY – This summer celebrate Germany’s most beloved grape, Riesling throughout the 31 days of July.
Festivities will take place in five major cities across Canada with bespoke programming, all spreading the word of the magnificently lively and versatile German Riesling grape.
“I love stocking German wines. Even though the country has a centuries old winemaking tradition, the wines are still under represented in the North America, so it’s fun to introduce people to something they maybe wouldn’t think of straight away… German Riesling is certainly among the best white wines in the world. German wines are incredibly food friendly! The Germans figured out long ago that rich and zippy whites are perfect for rich meats, and they have the delicacy to compliment the veg-heavy cuisine that is increasing in popularity”.
– Peter Hammond, Sommelier, DaiLo Restaurant
Canadians from Halifax to Vancouver will have the opportunity to experience German Rieslings as they never had before — from unique finds and natural Rieslings at participating independent wine merchants — to select restaurants featuring culinary dishes paired with German wines — to virtual tastings with celebrity wine educators.
Visit www.germanwinecanada.com on July 1st for details on how you can join in the celebrations near you.
