If you're a wine connoisseur or even just a wine enthusiast, chances are you are aware that Riesling is slowly gaining global traction. This white wine grape with roots in the Rhine region of Germany is highly versatile and goes from delicate to sweet but all with fresh acidity. To celebrate this wonderfully appetising wine, Riesling Weeks is coming back strong again for its fourth running. The month-long event will kickstart on 30th May with a walk-around tasting event led by Germany wine global ambassador, Katarina Fladung who was crowned "German Wine Princess", and will involve exploring over a 120 German wines with matching platters.
Throughout the month of June, restaurants around town will be offering special Riesling promotions. Asian restaurants include Yun Yan, Nanhai no.1, Yi Jing Nam and Ming Court while Western restaurants will include Aberdeen Street Social, Alibi - wine dine be social, Darcy & Liz, and FINDS amongst many others.
