The Germans are coming...thank goodness...and with them solar power, sturdy cars and damn good wines. For decades, we have come to equate Germany with sweet, sticky, and quaffable wines that our mother-in-laws crave. Nowadays, thanks to importers like Rudi Wiest Selections, we have come to expect our German swill to be low alcohol, food-friendly, dry and mouthwateringly complex. Varietals like Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir are no longer antonymous with the Rhineland. They are on par with their Riesling brethren, in terms of quality and class. So join us this Friday as we welcome some of the best of the best that Germany has to offer. Oh and, you might just want to bring your mother-in-laws...for good measure.
