New Vintages Tasting

March 16 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Dear German Wine Society Members and Guests,
Every year we host a tasting to try wines from the new vintage, with a focus on Riesling. Our host is Phil Bernstein of MacArthur Beverages, one of the leading retailers of German Riesling in the country.
The new vintage is 2016, which David Schildknecht describes as remarkably restrained and consistently fine, yielding Rieslings that are “deliciously drinkable”. Terry Theise found them “nearly perfect”, providing “repeated inputs of joy, sheer joy, and grinning, giddy, animal joy.”
Please join us as we try the wines and write our own reviews. A follow-up email will list the specific wines.
DATE Friday, March 16th, Doors open at 7:00 pm; tasting begins at 7:30 pm.
VENUE: Harbour Square Club Room, 500 N St SW, Washington, DC. Marilyn Scarbrough has reserved a few parking spaces, but we cannot guarantee these will be available. The Waterfront Metro Station is nearby.
COST: $45 for members, $55 for non-members.
Light refreshments will be served. Alcohol consumption can lead to intoxication. GWS members and guests should use public transportation, rely on a designated driver or taxi, or taste the wines rather than finish them.
If you have any questions, please email Dave Wendler: davewendler@yahoo.com

Paying by check: Mail your check, made out to the ‘German Wine Society’, along with the completed form below, to Joseph Aguiar, 2501 Calvert St NW, Apt 501, Washington, DC 20008.
