One Big Riesling Tasting

February 28, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


It hasn’t been a summer to remember, but we’ll send it off with some spectacular Riesling.

For those that are sold on the idea already.

28th February, 1-3pm @ Mezzo, 35 Little Bourke St Melbourne. $10 per head. Bookings here, by return email or call 0418 23 04 82.

Last year we tasted six examples that highlighted the best the world of Riesling had to offer.

This year we are going bigger.

You get to meet four different distributors showing their Riesling wares which will include quality Australian producers as well as some lovely European examples.

As you know. It’s not always the road well travelled.

We’ll dig down into the fine details of what makes Riesling so darn awesome and we’ll do that by letting you taste some of the great wines available.

Why Riesling?

If you’ve ever tasted a great Riesling this question needs not be answered. If you haven’t tasted a great Riesling, then come and try them at this tasting to see what makes this variety so special.

What is the format?

You will be self paced for two hours, you can taste as many or as few wines as you like and take the time chat to the suppliers so you learn as much as you can about this tasty grape. There will be finger food served Mezzo’s awesome kitchen.

Want to come along?

28th February, 1-3pm @ Mezzo. $10 per head. Bookings here, by return email or call 0418 23 04 82.

There is no collective noun for Riesling lovers but see you with glass in hand on the 28th.

Yours in mutual Riesling fancy,
Phil Smith
