Riesling Weeks is currently in full throttle as restaurants around town work together to highlight the virtues of this lesser known German grape. The month long celebration kicked off with a bang on May 30th when we sampled over 150 German wines, with tapas to match, while being educated on the history and development of the sweet white grape and other German wines by none other than Katharina Fladung, the German Wine Princess herself. The event took place at Hotel Icon and saw over 300 guests wined and dined.
Here are some highlights of the event:
