In the course of this summery wine tasting the colour white will be in the spot light. These 5 best-known grape varieties Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc/Bianco will present their entire range of colours. Of course the colour is also depending on the grape variety, maturation and maturity stage from white to amber-coloured.
We will taste 12 international white wines on a top class level in two series (flights). Together we will figure our why the same grape variety from various countries may taste quite different. One wine will always come from its country of origin. However, the counterpart wine is selected from a completely different and sometimes almost equally famous wine region.
Particular attention is paid to comparable vintages, maturity stages and price categories of the respective flights. Similar wine styles are used to create comparable conditions as well.
Delicious cold and warm snacks will complete this wine tasting in alliance with the wines.
The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 14 persons.
