Germany & Austria – Europe’s Unsung Heroes @ Hicks Fine Wines
Oct 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Many of us only think of one wine when it comes to Germany: Riesling, and the presumption that all is sweet. In fact, there are many faces to riesling, from the ultra dry, to sparkling to the unctuously sweet. And Austria is even more unknown to the consumer! Join Marcia J. Hamm of Joy of Wine as 8 wines from Germany and Austria are unveiled for your tasting pleasure! You’ll be surprised at the quality and the prices vary for every budget level! For $50 per person, come out to taste some unsung heroes that are to some, obscure, unknown and perhaps confusing, but high in taste and quality! Only 16 spaces available, call or email the store to book your spot!
