It's Riesling Time: Sat July 30

Forget the stereotype sweet Rieslings you might have tasted before and come discover why Riesling is known as the 'food lovers wine'. Riesling has incredible food pairing versatility and can match with almost any dish...even the more challenging spicy Asian, Mexican or Morrocan dishes.

For the next event, Elisa our Once Upon A Table novice sommelier will guide you through 5 different Rieslings tastings ranging from a range of styles from sweet, dry, semi-dry, light, full-bodied, or wonderfully crisp, citrusy and fruity.

We will be pairing the Riesling with small delicious food dishes that work well with the diverse flavors and characters of the wine. We hope it will be a Riesling Revelation for you. Here is a sneak peak at the menu (note: some items may be adapted slightly).
