Online 31 Days of Riesling Night 2
Did you know July is a month to celebrate Riesling? Every year wine shops and wine schools up and down the UK take part in 31 Days of Riesling, a fab focus on the incredible grape variety which is responsible for some of the world’s most distinctive and delicious wines. The Local Wine School network is pooling its talents to ensure the 31 Days doesn’t pass without a bit of a party here in Wine School land.
Night 2 is one of our absolute favourite formats: welcome to the Great Riesling Grape Debate! Wine School owners Rob, Simon and Ruth will be competing head to head for your vote as they argue that their chosen region produces the best Riesling in the New World.
In the Clifton corner we have Ruth Wiles, waxing lyrical about South Australia’s Eden Valley; here Riesling is ultra-dry, with a steely edge and a fresh lime-filled flavour. Manchester’s resident Riesling expert, Simon Woods will be waving the Stars and Stripes for Riesling from Washington State. The Pacific North West gifts us Riesling which is a touch softer, with more juicy stone fruit and a delicate floral edge. Going in to battle from the Midlands Team we have Rob from Birmingham, he’ll be celebrating Chile’s Leyda Valley as the new kid on the Riesling block. Here we’ll be enjoying a stunning single vineyard wine with depth, flinty mineral notes and a smoky petrolic edge.
Grape Debate is a brilliant format where you can enjoy the passion and knowledge of multiple wine school owners in a fun and interactive format. Come and discover a different side to Riesling as you learn about it in the New World.
Those of you who have signed up to the two weeks will also get our tasty and easy to follow recipe cards- plenty to cook up and enjoy with the Grape Debate night as well!
