Tastings which are sure to entertain, tantalize and
educate you on this glorious grape. All tastings at Terroir E.Vil.
Monday, September 13th, 6:00pm $25.00
Alsace sometimes gets lost in the conversation of French wine.
With its obvious Germanic attachments, few realize that this region
in the northeast of France is one of the finest growing regions
in the country. And it is the only part
of France that legally allows Riesling to be grown.
And what Rieslings they are: powerful, richly
fruited, long lived, incredible expressions of the myriad terroirs
in this 50 mile stretch of wine nirvana. We will explore the villages
and the Grand Cru sites, the dry wines and the late harvest wines,
and the schizophrenia that comes from
being French, German and Alsatian all at the same time.
The Glorious Bernkasteler Doctor, the greatest vineyard in Germany
Tuesday, September 14th, 6:00pm $25.00
Superlatives too easily flow from the lips of wine folk. But in
the case of the Bernkasteler Doctor Vineyard and the estate of
Dr. H. Thanisch - Erben Müller-Burggraef, there are not enough
words to describe the glory of this land and its wines. The
fame of the parcel originated with the Archbishop of Trier who
in the mid 13th century fell ill and could only be cured with
the wine from this vineyard; thereafter, it was known as the Doctor.
Its 8.1 acres are the most expensive agricultural
land in Germany. Barbara Rundquist-Müller presently oversees
the estate and will be joining us tonight to regale us with historical
tales and bottles of wine genius. This vineyard is the epitome
of greatness in the Riesling vine; your
Riesling life will never be the same after this night.
Wines of Burklin-Wolf from the Pfalz Region of Germany
Tuesday, September 21st, 6:00pm $25.00
broad brush used to paint Germany as producing solely sweet wine
is very much in
And to be honest, this brush never completely covered the massive
canvas that is Germany. Of the 13 wine regions in the country,
the Pfalz Region has been producing dry wine for many a decade.
The wines are big, powerful and expressive on a grand scale; maybe,
just maybe, these wines are the perfect marriage of the German,
Austrian and Alsatian styles. Annette
Siegrist of the Burklin-Wolf Estate will join us tonight to
expound on these majestic wines,
bringing with her the single crus of Rechbächel, Pechstein
and Gaisböhl (a mini vertical of '07, '03 and '97). If your
only thought and memory of German wine involves sweetness, strap
on your seat belt and join us for this monumental journey to the
German Trocken (Dry) Land.
Wines of Prager and Stadt Krems from Austria
Wednesday, September 22nd, 6:00pm SOLD
For the final night of Summer
of Riesling 2010, we are going out
with a bang, aided by two friends from Austria: Robert
Bodenstein of Weingut Prager
in the Wachau Region and Franz Josef Gansberger
of Stadt Krems in the Kremstal Region.
In their respective areas, both producers are hallmarks for what
the Riesling grape grown in grand terroir can produce. Each
of them will be given a soap box to proclaim the glories of their
respective lands and of course each of them has brought
cool grape juice to give us a liquid expression of their abilities.
As a final hurrah to Summer of Riesling
2010, we could not have asked for anything greater..
**All tastings will be held at Terroir EVil
at 413 East 12th Street**
To reserve a seat, please call 646-602-1300
