SommCon Virtual Summit Seminar: German Gems Beyond Riesling – September 25, 2020

Wines of Germany is back at SommCon – but this time it’s all taking place online! You won’t want to miss the special Wines of Germany-sponsored session on Friday, September 25 2:00-3:30pm PT / 5:00-6:30pm ET: German Gems Beyond Riesling 

SommCon is bringing its live conference education directly to registered trade members at home. Passes include access to 30+ sessions on wine, beer, and spirits, along with some added bonus activities and networking opportunities.

Wines of Germany’s dedicated session will explore great German grapes beyond Riesling. While Riesling is often heralded as the crown jewel of Germany, the country’s winemaking regions are home to over 140 grape varieties ranging from Acolon to Zweigeltrebe. Join Houston-based sommelier Chris Poldoian, 2020 Wines of Germany Ambassador and host of the By The Glass podcast, to learn more about and taste an array of Germany’s lesser-known gems, featuring interviews from some of the producers diversifying the German countryside:
