6:00 PM - 8:15 PM

Take a “tour” of the German wine regions and learn about what makes them special. Sommelier & German Wine Ambassador Amy Waller is back at the GAI to be your guide through the exciting (and delicious) world of German wines. In this introduction class, you’ll learn about the thirteen Anbaugebiete (wine-growing regions) of Germany and sample from at least five of the regions. Together, we’ll savor these German wines with a light snack and leave some time at the end for discussion and questions.

Interested in joining our upcoming German Wine Tour? This workshop is a perfect place to start! Learn more about the regions we’ll visit (Franken, Pfalz, Mosel, and Rheingau), meet our partner and tour sommelier, Amy Waller, and sample wines from a few of the vineyards we’ll visit on the tour!

Class begins at 6 p.m., doors open at 5:45 p.m.
$75 non-members / $65 members

You may know Amy from the Wine Workshops that she’s hosted at the GAI Haus or from her wine samplings at Deutsche Tage and Oktoberfest. She considers herself our resident German wine sommelier, spreading the German wine love and letting everyone know that it’s not all BIER! Amy’s a seasoned hospitality & wine professional in the Twin Cities having worked more than 25 years in hospitality in a number of local institutions including France 44 Wine and Spirits, Lucia’s Wine Bar, Khâluna and the James Beard award winning restaurant, The Bachelor Farmer. She fell in love with German wine years ago during her time at The Bachelor Farmer and has spent many years honing her knowledge of the country. She’s been a Wines of Germany ambassador since 2018 hosting educational seminars and tastings for German wine fans across the country and is now solely focused on German wine imports, in her role with The German Wine Collection. She visits Germany regularly to keep up with her producers. It’s rare to see her without a bottle of Riesling in tow.
