Join us for a lively tasting with acclaimed importer and wine guru Terry Theise. Terry will present six wines from his German and Austrian portfolio and regale us with entertaining stories about the personalities behind the wines. In addition, one lucky drawing winner will take away a signed copy of Reading Between the Wines, Terry’s opinionated, idiosyncratic, and beautifully written testament to wine. In his highly approachable style, Theise describes how wine can be a portal to aesthetic, emotional, even mystical experience—and he frankly asserts that these experiences are most likely to be inspired by wines from artisan producers. Along the way, Theise tells us a little about how he got where he is today, explores the meaning of wine in the lives of vintners he has known, and praises particular grape varieties. Reading between the Wines is a passionate tribute to wine—and to what it can say to us once we learn to listen.
