Luxembourg Wine Tasting

October 25, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

We have been invited to return to the beautiful Embassy of Luxembourg on Friday, October 25, 2013 at 7 p.m. for another exciting opportunity to enjoy the wines of the “other Mosel,” the Moselle River in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

Those who attended our last tasting at the Luxembourg Embassy in March 2011 will recall what a wonderful evening it was, and this event promises to be even more spectacular, with about twice as many wines — we had seven last time — and expect over a dozen to be available this time.

Some of the dry and sparkling wine varieties will be familiar from the last tasting, but this time we will also have many of the sweeter “specialty wines” of Luxembourg, including the vendange tardive (late harvest), vin moelleux (mellow wine), vin de glace (ice wine), and vin de paille (straw wine).

This is truly a unique tasting opportunity, as Luxembourg’s specialty wines are produced in very small quantities and are not normally available in the United States — we have them thanks to the assistance of our Embassy contacts.

Ambassador of Luxembourg Jean-Louis Wolzfeld will deliver some opening remarks on the history of wine-making in Luxembourg, its wine region and the types of wines. In addition, Ambassador Wolzfeld is choosing several special wines from his Embassy’s cellar that we will be able to taste in comparison with the Luxembourg wines that are now in our Society Cellar. Light refreshments will be served during the tasting.
