SUMMER OF RIESLING EVENT SERIES COMES TO AN END

August 31, 2012

The week between August 14 and August 20 marked the biggest celebration of Austrian Riesling in the US to date spanning across two major cities, Chicago and New York, and several days in the Summer of Riesling’s Ode to Austria festival!

During that time we paired cheese from the famed Murray’s Cheese Shop with several flights of Austrian Riesling at Hearth, paraded down the Highline in dirndls, took over Chicago’s culinary scene with a series of wine dinners at eight of the city’s top restaurants, sampled Chicago’s and NYC’s elite wino’s at retail shops, took over the Open Secret Studio’s in an acid-filled dance extravaganza, tasted top industry people on Austrian Riesling at the newly opened City Winery, sang along to the Sound of Music at Julius Meinl Cafe, and offered NYC industry people a taste of Austrian Riesling and more at Ost Cafe and later, Edi & the Wolf.

Whew!
So how did it all go? Swell, of course. Read on for more specific details on each event at the Austrian Wine USA blog.
