Sharing is the most beautiful aspect of wine drinking – within the family, with friends, with other wine lovers – wines, experiences, impressions, friendships and conversations. Riesling SWAG is an event to share wines of Germany’s most famous grape.
Inspired by the La Paulée de Bourgogne dinners around the world and Stephen Bitterolf’s Rieslingfeier in New York City, at Riesling SWAG we want to celebrate our beloved white wine variety and share some great bottles. Eleven Riesling producers from Germany bring mature wines from their cellar, eleven sommeliers provide an entertaining and communicative wine service and the restaurant VLET in the Speicherstadt will serve a Northern German Riesling inspired 5-course menu.
Riesling SWAG is a Bring Your Own Bottle dinner, where the guests bring their own wine and share it with other Riesling lovers. Because the producers let you enjoy their own special bottles and the sommeliers spare their rare time for this special event, we encourage you in the spirit of fairness to bring the best of your Rieslings to this event: mature wines, rarities, large formats for example. Let us all do our best to make the first Riesling SWAG dinner an unforgettable evening for everyone.
The event takes place at April 1st 2017 in VLET in der Speicherstadt Restaurant in Hamburg. Tickets for the Riesling SWAG dinner cost EUR 299, – per ticket and a Rieslingsekt reception, a 5-course menu, accompanying drinks and enjoyment of many great Rieslings.
