German Estates Group travels to Troy present a once-in-a-lifetime tasting experience

On March 4, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., The Charles F. Lucas Confectionery and Wine Bar will host six German winemakers, representing five classic wine growing regions of their country. During the event, each winemaker will present sample wine selections from their estate, paired with artisanal cheese selected by the Confectionery staff.
