$30.00 – $60.00

Riesling and Germany are synonyms in the wine world, with an identity so inextricably linked that one can hardly be mentioned without the other.

Yet, as the price of German Riesling (and Old World examples in general) goes up and the quantities available go down, these classic wines may well be out of reach or unavailable for some Australian venues.

But as sommeliers and wine buyers we need to find affordable replacements from somewhere. So where do we go for quality alternatives?

The rest of the wine universe of course!

Join Sommeliers Australia’s David Newman (S.Smith & Son/Negociants Australia) and Michael Fisher (The Tasman, A Luxury Collection Hotel) as they visit an ‘alternate Riesling universe’. Compare German examples vs. New World offerings across four brackets of varying sweetness; taste and discuss the regional, stylistic, price and quality options that open up for somms and buyers once they look beyond the Old World and explore what else is out there.


Bookings are essential and will be taken until 4pm, Friday 2 February, unless booked out prior.
