Rolls n’ Riesling! Chicago Sushi Restaurants Pour German Wine Specials – September 1-30, 2018
All September long, our Chicago ambassador Jon McDaniel presents Rolls ‘n Riesling – a special promotion across 24 restaurants pairing Germany’s hallmark white wine with sushi and other Asian cuisine from Japanese and Vietnamese to fusions and local interpretations – and beyond!
Light to medium-bodied with pronounced acidity, German Riesling can range in style from crisp and dry to off-dry and fruit-forward. This versatility makes Riesling the perfect pairing for a diverse range of foods, including the variety of sushi flavors. An off-dry Riesling with notes of stone fruit can stand up to the spice of wasabi, while a dry Riesling balances the delicate flavor of sashimi. Visit any of our partner restaurants below to enjoy the food-friendly affinity of German Riesling through September 30!
