Germany is one of the most misunderstood wine countries in the world, and their wines are always associated with sweet styles of wine. So once again we are going to try to prove you wrong, and show you three dry styles of wine from Germany. We also have an extremely special guest for our tasting, the legendary winemaker Ernie Loosen. For those of you who don’t know him his vineyard has been ranked in the top-10 in the world, as well as him personally winning Decanter Magazine’s “Man of the Year” plus numerous other global awards. He is an unbelievable winemaker, and a real ambassador for German wine in general in particular the Mosel wine region.
We will be focusing on three regions of Germany Mosel, Pfalz and Franconia, and showing you the wonders of what makes Germany one of the truly great wine countries in the world, as well as offering stunning value across the board. Don’t let any misconceptions put you off this tasting, as we will prove that Germany is one of the great winemaking countries.
You will get three 750ml bottles, two white wines and one red wine for this tasting which is live at 5pm on the 6th June.
This recurring event will be hosted by both Phil the owner and Paul the wine educator, plus Will the owner of Anderson & Hill, giving you a unique chance to experience a tasting with both wine experts at Loki, a cheese expert.
To make it simple for you, for this tasting you just need to buy the wines from us, then purchase the cheese to match the wines. Cheese TBA
