Ravishing Rieslings - Germany vs. USA, etc.. - BYOB or Just Taste

Rieslings are the fast becoming one of the most loved white wine varietals. People enjoy the tart acidity and spicy, flower notes.

Rieslings are very versatile with food. They pair well with everything from spicy Thai to most fish, including sushi and even some Mexican.

At this meetup we will bring bottles of Riesling from all over the world to compare. So bring a bottle of Riesling from Germany or Washington or wherever.

So lets sip on the salacious yet savory goodness that is Riesling.

$5 if you bring a bottle, $10 to just taste. We will put the fees in a pot and the winner, (whoever brings the best rated bottle will take home the pot (Minus food expense). Blind Tasting.

Meat and exotic cheese plates provided.

Great Value event, the last 8 times, everyone got to taste at least 10 wines, and the winner took home money for bringing the best wine.

Once again, whoever brings the best wine (Blind rated), will take home the pot. If we get 10 people to show, the after expense pot should be at least $50, Last week the winner took home $95.

We will taste blind and rate using the Robert Parker 100 point system.

Think you know Riesling? Bring a bottle and let's find out. If you bring the best bottle, you will go home with the winnings. Last time the winner took home $95, week before the pot was $80.

Starts at 7PM, but feel free to show up early, I always have a bottle or 2 open.

So, Bring a bottle, throw in $5 to the pot or $10 to just come and taste.

    Any one up for meeting for dinner before the tasting. Looks like a lot of places close by. 5:30 or so would give time to eat first. Open to suggestions.
