The City of Riesling is back again this year with our co-founder Stuart Pigott, John Haeger (author, Riesling Rediscovered), and Mike Bennie (Australian wine journalist extraordinaire) as our esteemed riesling mavens. Our mission is the same: Bring the world of riesling together in one of the best places to be in July; with a special emphasis on better acquainting Great Lakes Region sommeliers with cutting edge examples of The Best White Wine on Earth.
WHEN: Saturday, July 22 – Monday, July 24 (Immediately preceding the 2017 Traverse City Film Festival)
WHERE: Traverse City, Michigan, USA
Sunday, July 23: Night of 100 Rieslings: Public Tasting by the bay in downtown Traverse City. The world’s most interesting dry/off-dry Rieslings presented by attending winemakers and sommeliers. Daytime tasting events to be announced.
Monday, July 24: Salon Riesling at The Franklin: Stuart Pigott, John Haeger, Mike Bennie, and attending winemakers and sommeliers will lead themed discussions about our favorite white wine (tba). These are truly public discussions, and are one of the most rewarding things about the City of Riesling.
Details will be posted at www.cityofriesling.com as they are finalized.
