DATEFriday, March 18th at 7PMCOST: $39 for members and $46 for non-members. VENUE: Harbour Square Club Room at 500 N St SW, Washington, DC. 20024, a 2-minute walk from the Van Ness stop on the Red Line.
The 2014 wines are just arriving, and now is a great time to sample what is available so you can decide what to buy based on what tastes good to you. Please see below for the wonderful wines we will be tasting.
John Gilman calls the 2014 vintage: A roller coaster of a year which turned out very, very well at the top estates and there are some absolutely superb wines in the pipeline that are going to delight lovers of classic German wines. The wines tend to be elegant and pure rather than powerful. According to importer Terry Theise: “This is the vintage where you’ll finally learn what the “H” stands for in Jesus H. Christ, because that’s what you’ll be saying over and over again.”
All GWS members and guests are reminded that alcohol consumption can lead to intoxication. Members and guests should use public transportation, rely on a designated driver, or taste the wines rather than finish them.
