Grapes to Glass: Riesling Master Class

Thursday, May 4, 2023
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Riesling is synonymous with German wine—and for a good reason. This class will examine the wide range of styles of this sometimes misunderstood white wine. From sparkling to dry to off-dry and lusciously sweet varieties, Riesling can do it all! The workshop includes sampling and time for questions for instructor Amy Waller, an official German wine ambassador.

About the instructor:

Amy Waller was born into restaurant life in rural Minnesota and learned hospitality from her mom at their small family restaurant. Mom’s lessons taught her the importance of service, passion, connection and community, all driving principles that she has applied during more than 25 years in hospitality. She’s worked at a number of Twin Cities establishments including Lucia’s, Khâluna and James Beard award winning The Bachelor Farmer. 2020 brought new opportunities when she began working as an educator and group sales manager at France 44 Wine and Spirits in south Minneapolis. She’s also a member of Les Dames d’Escoffier Minnesota, founding member of Twin Cities Somms, and a certified sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers. It’s rare to see her without a bottle of Riesling in tow.
