They say it takes one month to acquire a new habit. This summer, embrace the path to self-improvement with “31 Days of German Riesling,” a celebration of Germany’s most famous wine varietal, kicking off today at over 100 restaurants and wine shops across the country.
Think you “know” Riesling? Chances are, you have only experienced a fraction of what this chameleon-like grape has to offer. From bone dry to unctuous and sweet, and capable of standing up to a wide range of different cuisines, German Riesling is not only a darling of the culinary world, it also has something to offer every palate.
From July 1-31st, explore the myriad expressions of this bright, food-friendly grape as you enjoy German Rieslings in by-the-glass specials, flights and food-and-wine pairing menus at participating restaurants in your city.
Wine shops across the country will also offer in-store tastings and discounts on bottles of your favorite wines for the entire month. Find a tasting near you here.
In addition, Wines of Germany is giving one lucky winner a brand new wine fridge and $2,000 to Wine.com to stock it with your favorite German Rieslings. To enter, share how you enjoy Riesling on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using #ReachforRiesling.
