It seems to have taken United States wine drinkers a while to warm up to Riesling wine but more and more people are discovering the delightful food-friendly white wine. Now Riesling is getting its own event. Chateau Ste. Michelle and Dr. Loosen, the team behind the delicious Eroica Riesling, will host "Riesling Rendezvous" in June at the Chateau Ste. Michelle winery in Woodinville, Washington. The three-day event, June 24-26, 2007, will include tastings, food pairings and workshops. The Rendezvous offers the chance to taste wines from around the world including a gala tasting of on the evening of June 26th at the new Seattle Art Museum Olympic Sculpture Park. It looks like you can't buy tickets to certain events you have to sign up for the whole Riesling Rendezvous which costs $700 ($600 if you sign up before April 15).
