New York Riesling Diary: Day 1 – YOU ARE ALL INVITED! New York is the Place, this is the Time for #BWWOE!

YOU ARE ALL INVITED to the official launch of my new book BEST WHITE WINE ON EARTH – The Riesling Story just published by Stewart, Tabori & Chang. New York is the place, this is the time! To be precise the Cool Location – pictured above – is Terroir Murray Hill, 439 Third Avenue (between 30th and 31st streets) is the place and 2pm thru 4pm on Saturday, June 21st is the perfect time (unless you are trade or press, in which case you can come one hour earlier). There you will be able to see and purchase the book, meet and taste the wines from eight of the world’s leading Riesling producers.

Steffen Christmann from the Christmann estate in the Pfalz, Oliver Haag of the Fritz Haag estate and Ernst Loosen from the Dr. Loosen estate both in the Mosel and Philipp Wittmann from the Wittmann estate in Rheinhessen will be representing Germany, largest producing nation on Planet Riesling. Janie Heuck Brooks of Brooks in Oregon,  Sean O’Keefe from Chateau Grand Traverse in Michigan, Bob Bertheau of Eroica/Chateau Set. Michelle in Washington State, Oskar Bynke and Fred Merwarth of Hermann J. Wiemer in the Finger Lakes of Upstate New York will be present from the second largest producing nation on Planet Riesling, the United States of America.

At ??pm I will be crowning the first official Riesling Queen of New York. Who will it be? And the Ghana vs Germany game will be on a screen from 3pm if you don’t want to miss the World Cup. There are no tickets, so all you need to do is come along. We are not asking an admission fee, but we are collecting donations for the HOPE foundation (HIV & AIDS prevention, care of victims and their orphans) in Cape Town/South Africa. $10 is not very much to give, and $50 really makes a difference.  To find the other events in our program just scroll down this page to the announcement of New York Riesling Week.
