Easing into Riesling

Dear Feastlings,

I don’t want to generalize, but I’m going to.  Outside of the wine industry, guests frequently have the perception that Riesling is somehow a lesser wine.  It’s cloying, they think, and it’s for an immature wine drinker, someone who drinks soft drinks rather than fine wine.  Inside the industry, that perception is rather different.  Chefs and wine professionals alike extol Riesling’s virtues- the various levels of sweetness and acidity, the breathtaking minerality, the awe-inspiring ageability and its remarkable ability to pair with a vast selection of foods.  This Saturday, Kevin bestows a kindness upon you all by opening four three Rieslings and a Scheurebe, all of which deserve a spot in your refrigerator and in your heart.  The tasting is at 2:00 pm this Saturday, January 12, and for only $10 plus tax and tip, you can be included.  You may recall that web and email reservations won’t hold you a place at the table, though, so you’ll want to call us at 326-9363 and we’re happy to save you a seat.
