German wine identity is so closely tied to the Riesling grape. Many people may be surprised to learn that Germany is the world’s third largest producer of Pinot Noir! This noble grape, called Spätburgunder in German, refers to a grape that is late-ripening (spät) pinot. The grape is widely grown across the country and producers there are making absolutely delicious, lively, fruity wines that are distinctive to the area. You may have had Pinot Noir from Oregon or Burgundy or even New Zealand, but I would guess you haven’t tasted many from Germany. Join us on Saturday, February 11 for a tasting tour of German Pinot Noir that you will not soon forget.
