Grapes to Glass: Intro to German Wines

Friday, February 17, 2023
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Take a “tour” of the German wine regions and learn about what makes them special. In our Intro to German Wines class, you’ll learn about the thirteen Anbaugebiete (wine growing regions) of Germany and sample wines from at least 5 different regions.  This first in a series of classes is taught by sommelier 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.

Read an interview of Amy on the Wines of Germany website.
