Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionSend by emailSend by email

Ballymaloe House, in association with Wine Australia, is thrilled to present this very interesting wine event.

Thursday May 17th, 2012, 7pm, The Grain Store, Ballymaloe, Shanagarry, Co. Cork

Riesling presents a conundrum. For some it produces the greatest white wines in the world, yet misunderstood and ridiculed by many. Our presentation, plus a 12 wine tasting, followed by a Summer supper, aims to resolves these two disparate points of view. Joining us to present the evening are 3 winemakers from some of the great Riesling growing regions of the world.

Tim Adams, Clare Valley, South Australia
- Tim Adams is based in Australia's Clare Valley and since establishing Tim Adams wines in 1984 has developed a reputation as a brilliant and fiercely independent winemaker.

Carl Ehrhard, Rheingau, Germany
- Based in Germanys Rheingau, Carl Ehrhard expertly marries tradition with innovation in making and packaging his delicious range of wines.

Séverine Schlumberger, Alsace, France
- Owing some of Alsace's most respected vineyard sites, Séverine Schlumberger of Domaines Schlumberger is custodian of both this famous house and it's vineyards.

Although from different parts of the world, Tim, Carl and Severine share a passion for Riesling, a passion they will share with us tonight.

The evening will be hosted by John Wilson, Irish Times Wine Scribe (and self confessed "Riesling disciple").
