Summer of Riesling Concert Cruise in NYC – August 20, 2019

Send off summer with a Riesling concert cruise in New York City! Hosted by Paul Grieco of Terroir Tribeca on Tuesday, August 20, the annual Summer of Riesling cruise will feature boat-loads of Riesling, an 80’s cover band, and even an appearance by the German Wine Queen.

Tickets include unlimited sips from all over the Riesling world on a 3-hour cruise along the East River. Boarding at 7:00pm, we’ll depart from 23rd St. Marina at 7:30pm and sail to the Statue of Liberty for a majestic sunset, returning to dock at 10:30pm. Enjoy the sights of the NYC skyline and the sounds of 80’s tribute band White Wedding.

Terroir owner Paul Grieco is known affectionately as “Riesling Overlord.” Paul first launched Summer of Riesling at Terroir in 2008, where the wine list celebrates his favorite grape year-round.

Paul and his team will be joined by special guest Carolin Klöckner, the 70th German Wine Queen. Every year since 1949, The German Wine Institute has elected a Wine Queen among 13 applicants from each of Germany’s official wine-growing regions. Applicants are judged on their wine knowledge, professionalism, and public speaking abilities, and the winner acts as international ambassador for German wine for one year. During her reign, Carolin will host wine tastings, moderate discussions, present at seminars, and attend events like the Summer of Riesling cruise.

Join Paul, Carolin, and Wines of Germany US on Tuesday, 8/20!
