About the 31 Days of German Riesling
31 Days of German Riesling is the national celebration of Germany’s most famous grape! Over 100 restaurants and wine shops nationwide have pledged their dedication to German Riesling by offering by-the-glass specials and tastings throughout the month of July.
Participating restaurants will offer at least two German Rieslings by the glass for the month of July, with some providing special offers such as Riesling flights and menu pairings. Wine shops across the country will offer in-store tastings and discounts on bottles of our favorite wine for the entire month. Find a tasting near you here.
