Great Riesling tasting set for 2016 London return

Published:  21 October, 2015

The Great Riesling Tasting has announced its return to London in 2016.

The tasting is a biennial event designed to bring many of the world's greatest Riesling producers together with importers and journalists to promote their wines.

The previous tasting in 2014 drew more than 400 members of the trade to sample wines from over 50 leading estates. Wines came from as far afield as Canada, Chile, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the US - as well as from the traditional Riesling-growing regions of Germany, Austria and the Alsace.

The event will take place on Monday, May 16 at Lindley Hall, Royal Horticultural Society Elverton Street, Victoria, London SW1P 2QW.

It is open from 10.30am to 5pm for trade and press only. Thereafter it will open to the general public until 7.30pm.

The news follows on from Wines of Germany's successful 31 Days of Riesling campaign in August 2015.

Wines of Germany is a key sponsor of The Great Riesling Tasting.
