New York Riesling Diary: Day 4 – Trapped on Planet Chardonnay or on an Asteroid called Sauvignon Blanc / Pinot Grigio? JOIN US TODAY on Planet Riesling at Terroir Murray Hill!

You don’t need to be a card carrying Riesling Fan or even a fellow traveller to join us between 2pm and 4pm today at Terroir Murray Hill (439 Third Avenue between 31st and 30th Streets) in New York for the launch of my new book BEST WHITE WINE ON EARTH – The Riesling Story, aka #BWWOE. If you are currently trapped on Planet Chardonnay or on an asteroid – those barren chunks of rock! – called Sauvignon Blanc / Pinot Grigio or even just lost in wine-space, then come and visit Planet Riesling for an afternoon. Defectors and the freedom-hungry of all kinds are welcome.


No academic qualifications are required for entry, you just have to be of the legal drinking age (21 for those in doubt). However, we do ask you to make a donation to the HOPE foundation that does everything from HIV & AIDS education to the care of the orphans of AIDS victims in Cape Town/South Africa as you come in the door. Their need is greater than ours!

Don’t worry, Riesling does not exclude the FIFA world cup. The Ghana vs Germany game will be screened, although I personally still don’t really understand how this foot-ball thing which the Americans call soccer. In fact, Riesling doesn’t exclude anything else except violence of all kinds. Just to clarify one point, I am not anti-Chardonnay, or anti-Sauvignon Blanc, or even anti-Pinot Grigio. There are some beautiful wines made from those grapes. However, I am anti-Bullshit Chardonnay, anti-Industrial Sauvignon Blanc and anti-Industrial Pinot Grigio, because that stuff is just schlock. The thing about Riesling is that so little schlock is produced from the grape and so much wine that’s refreshing for body and soul, that’s inspiring for the spirit and also seriously sexy. That’s what you can experience today if you come to Terroir Murray Hill in New York. JOIN US!
