Wines of Germany takes 31 Days of Riesling ‘up north’

Published:  13 March, 2019

Wines of Germany is taking 31 Days of Riesling to Manchester and Edinburgh this spring, marking the first time the tasting will take place outside London.

Extending the tasting ‘up north’ followed “high demand”, said Wines of Germany, adding the additional tastings would provide new networking opportunities in both of the cities.

Wines of Germany UK director Nicky Forrest said: “As the 31 Days movement has developed since its conception, we are seeing an increased number of participating restaurants, wine bars and retailers from all over the UK and we plan to encourage this nationwide growth year-on-year.”

Retailers and restaurants participating in the 2018 campaign, which showcased new branding, saw an average 500% volume increase in July (when it ran) and over 300% value increase, compared with June 2018.

Taking place in Manchester’s Salut Wines on Tuesday 26 March and Edinburgh wine bar Smith + Gertrude on Wednesday 10 April, German wine importers will be offered the opportunity to showcase their German Riesling selection to buyers and sommeliers.
