COMMUTER TASTING  FIVE WINES

CÔTES DU RHÔNE!

The "house red" of the South of France!

All of a sudden, it seems that wine lovers have been re-discovering the spicy value-driven wines of France's southern Rhone valley.  Usually blends of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and other "Rhone varieties", the same building blocks of Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas and Vacqueyras, Cotes du Rhone are generally friendlier and easier to drink.  Great wines for the summer grilling season, especially when cooking with olive oil and garlic.

Randy Kemner, Hosts

SIT-DOWN WINE SEMINAR

THE MAGIC SPELL OF GERMAN RIESLINGS FROM THE MOSEL VALLEY!

The queen of German Riesling!  Wines from JJ Prum, Zilliken, Werner, Reinhold Haart, Monchhof & more!

The Mosel has been called the Queen of German winemaking for its structured, delicate, gorgeous Rieslings, arguably some of the finest in the world, in bone-dry, off-dry, lightly sweet and very sweet expressions.  Tonight, join Jeremy as he introduces wines from some of the world's greatest wine estates:  J.J. Prüm, Zilliken, Reinhold Haart, Werner, Monchhof and more!  This tasting will have us asking ourselves, "Why aren't we drinking more of these delicious wines?!"
