“German Riesling to me equates exciting terroir-driven wines!” says returning restaurant participant, Vanya Filipovic, Owner of Le Vin Papillon and Sommelier at Joe Beef, Montreal.
“German Riesling is a match made in heaven when paired with Indian Cuisine! The classic low alcohol, crisp acidity and off-dry fruitiness of German Riesling complements the warmth and complexity of Indian spices like no other” says Derek Valleau, owner and sommelier at Pukka Restaurant.
Wine retailers such as Liberty Wine Merchants across British Columbia and Legacy Liquor Store will offer unbeatable deals you may also enjoy in the comfort of your home.
“This is our second year participating in 31 Days of German Riesling, and we’re very excited to take part again this August. Last year the response from our guests was so strong that we could barely keep German riesling in stock!
The program gives us an opportunity to present the versatility of German riesling to our guests by offering wines in a diversity of styles by the glass” says Nathan Morrell of Bar Isabel
