A Riesling for Everything

May 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


When most sommeliers are pressed to name their desert island grape, the answer is almost always “Riesling.” When young, it shows off fresh, juicy ripe peach fruit, & stony minerals. Then, in a matter of years, that same wine will show dried apricots, petrol, and an umami sort of depth. It crosses borders, pairing with every cuisine you can imagine, it has more style, grace & complexity as it ages, it comes in many forms from sparkling, to dry, to sweeter dessert wine styles. These different styles can be seen through not only the lens of the winemaker, but through the lens of terroir. Join NYK Beverage University Educator and Sommelier, Thera Clark, as we do a deep dive into the varied personalities of this shale & bedrock star, here in the Finger Lakes, and in your glass.
