Class Is Now In Session: German Riesling & Hip Hop IG Live – November 20, 2020

We’ll be “beasting off the Riesling” this Friday, November 20 at 8 EST! Understanding German Riesling can be as easy as 1-2-3, especially when there’s a song to pair. So grab your wine glasses because class is now in session!

Take notes from Wine Enthusiast 40 Under 40 recipient & Sommelier Jermaine Stone and wine influencer Mason Washington as they compare Rieslings from four German winemaking regions to a famous hip-hop artist who embodies each wine’s unique style. 

Jermaine created the Wine and Hip Hop podcast with the sole purpose of bringing wine and hip hop together through finding similarities in both, while showcasing the appreciation the hip hop community has always had for fine wine and the love that the wine community has for hip hop. 

Get a glimpse of his wine and hip hop pairing philosophy:

In 2020, Jermaine partnered with Mason for a series of IG Live events stylized “Class is Now in Session.” Mason has a similar goal in making wine accessible, relatable, and fun for people of all ages and backgrounds through his platform, “Live Everyday Like It’s Your Glass.” He teaches wine through music by breaking down lyrics of a song, breaking down tasting aspects of a wine, and finding a connection. Like music, there’s a wine for all types of moods.

Tune into this IG Live at @RealWolfofWine and @LeliyG_Wine on Friday, November 20 at 8pm ET for a virtual tasting as entertaining as it is educational.
