After a break in September, we're back with our October wine dinner, at Hop Woo, in West LA.
Date/Time: Wednesday, October 24, 7 PM
Location: Hop Woo, 11110 West Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, CA
Theme: Bring a bottle of white wine from Germany, Austria, or the Alsace region of France. White wines from these regions are known for their great balance of fruit and acidity. They are famous for pairing well with Asian food.
Varietals include, among others:
Riesling Gewurztraminer Gruner Veltliner Pinot Blanc Pinot Gris Scheurebe Muller-Thurgau Sylvaner
We're not requiring any minimum price or rating for your wines, this time, but this is definitely a value category. You can get some nice examples of these wines for $25 to $30, but of course you can get some superb wines if you're willing to spend a bit more.
