Is Riesling the New Rosé?

July 22nd, 2015

Move over Rosé, there’s a new summer wine on the scene. It’s a bold claim, we know, but ever since our recent Riesling tasting a few weeks ago, every member of our team is a total convert. Sure, it could have been the picturesque scene at Jeffrey’s that had us feeling fuzzy, or the guidance of Master Sommelier June Rodil that had us engaged and excited, but honestly, the wines were just so good. I could go on and on, but you’re better off checking out the gorgeous photos from the day and reading all of June’s helpful tips for becoming a Reisling enthusiast. Click through and let us know what you think: are you a die hard Rosé fan through-and-through, or are you onto the next thing with Riesling?

    I am impressed, you actually had a whole segment on German Rieslings with an excellent sommelier who unashamedly loves the wines from Germany. Myself, coming from the Rhein Westfalia region, was sort of born into those wines. Unfortunately the got a not so good reputation with all the sweet cheap stuff in the past. For a hot place like Texas, Riesling wines are perfectly refreshing, delicious and a pleasure to drink. Just wish she wouldn’t have said that the German language is hard to understand for the labels….maybe, but I doubt it. But thank you for bringing the wines to the people in Austin.

    FYI….its difficult to read the text on one picture with all the wine bottles.

    Ahh! This day was so much fun. Can we just do it all over again? Definitely going to be ordering more Rieslings from this point forth.

  3. This was such a fun field trip to photograph! I’m a convert for sure!

    Such a great time! And, for us Texas girls, I was glad to have June clear up the German labels, which I DO think can be hard to understand. I was a Riesling fan before, and even more now!

    My heart belongs to June! 🙂

  6. I have never been much of a Rosé fan, but Riesling has always been one of my favourites!

    xo, Liz

    This blog enticed me to actually attend the Riesling wine event at Josephine House on Sunday, July 26….I had a great time, but was a bit overwhelmed with the amount of wines, but overlooking my selection, came up with 3 choices , from very reasonable $10.99 to $37.50 (Sekt)…..Also wished the air conditioner was somewhat cooler in the restaurant, it was almost cooler outside with the misers. Delicious German food was served with a great plum strudel to boot.
