After almost two months in New York Wine City I will be heading back to Berlin shortly. Fear not, I shall return with this diary and much else on March 4th. To celebrate the end of my longest stay to date in the US I will be throwing a STUART PIGOTT RIESLING GLOBAL party from 9pm on Tuesday, January 22nd at American Flatbread’s new TriBeCa Hearth restaurant (205 Hudson Street at Canal Street). The photograph shows the basement space where all the action will be Tuesday night. This event is a joint venture between Vermont-based American Flatbread, New York wine importer Michael Skurnik and I. Because Skurnik’s Terry Theise Selections of German and Austrian wines are presented that day in the city, a long list of top growers including Cornelius Dönnhoff from the Nahe/Germany and Vincent Bründlmayer from the Kamptal/Austria will also be attending Tuesday evening. Admission is free, but entry is strictly by invitation only. If you have not yet received an invitation, but wish to come then please send an email to the following address: Suzanne.firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: we will be filming parts of the evening for a feature-length film which I am working on. If you attend you may well appear with other people in group shots simply because of the nature of the event. If you don’t want to be interviewed or for the camera to come close to you, then please let us know either before you arrive or immediately on arrival. We don’t want to be invasive, but the opportunity to film so many leading Riesling producers and Riesling fans together is just too good to miss.
