Riesling Lounges


Die DWI Riesling Lounges

The aim of the Riesling Lounges is to introduce people living outside of the winegrowing regions, to the diversity of wines produced in German cellars. They are joint projects between a local restaurateur and the German Wine Institute, promoting not just Riesling, but a large selection of wines from the 13 different winegrowing regions.
