NEXT GUERRILLA TASTING: Wednesday 13th Oct RIESLING UP CLOSE

We’re popping up again indoors this Wednesday Oct 13th. 

This week we’re shining the spotlight on Riesling in all its fascinating forms! 
Riesling is possibly the most misunderstood grape, so we’re here to put that right. 
We’ll show you why Riesling is considered king in Germany and nobility in Alsace – it can age really well (for decades in fact) and few grape varieties express ‘terroir’ quite like it. 
 
So on Wednesday between 5.30 and 8pm, we’ll be popping corks on 5 different wines that we think will show you just how exciting Riesling can be. Riesling is also a dream to match with food, so we’ve selected some of our favourite matches for you to try for yourself. 
 
Our Guerrilla Tastings are informal pop-up tastings- we’ll give you a flight of 5 wines and as with all our Guerrilla Tastings, this won’t be a tutored tasting, we’ll leave you to your own devices to enjoy the drinks, but will give a brief explanation of each. The perfect way to catch up with your friends!     
 
Cost €35pp for tasting of 5 wines and accompanying bites. There is no set start time, you can join us anytime between 5.30pm and 8.00pm. We will be taking walk-ins, but send us an email to info@latitude51.ie if you’re interested in joining us.
