Event Details

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

 

When it comes to world-class wine, most Americans think California, France or Italy first. But this Monday, a Troy wine bar will help show that Germany rivals all others in aromatic, ultra refreshing white wine production.

 

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. 

 

The following winemakers are scheduled to attend:

 

Karin Fischer, Dr. Fischer (Saar Region)

Wine 1 – Dr. Fischer Ockfener Bockstein QbA 2011
Wine 2 – Dr. Fischer Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Kabinett

Cost for the event is $25 per person, which includes wine tasting samples and cheese.
