Owner-Winemakers of Silver Thread Vineyards, Paul and Shannon Brock are back on Facebook Live for a new 3-week Virtual Tasting Series.
Virtual Tastings are a fun way to stay connected and take a much-needed break during these challenging times. Silver Thread always celebrates Riesling during May, so they’ve decided to showcase and explore the many expressions of their signature grape in a new Virtual Tasting series.
Each wine in the series has been rated at least 90 points (“outstanding”) by Wine Spectator, Robert Parker or Vinous Media. Five of Silver Thread’s 2018 Rieslings earned 90 points in the current issue of Wine Spectator, and three of them are included in this series.
Participants who taste all six wines (different vintages are ok) and join the tastings on Facebook Live will earn a “Silver Thread Riesling Expert” award.
- Session 1: Dry Rieslings & Age-ability of Riesling- May 1, 5:30-6:30, featuring Dry Riesling 2014 and Dry Riesling 2018
- Session 2: Off-dry Rieslings and Single Vineyard Styles—May 8, 5:30-6:30pm, featuring Riesling Estate Vineyard 2018 and Riesling Doyle Fournier Vineyard 2018
- Session 3: Medium-sweet Rieslings and Late Harvest Style– May 15, 5:30-6:30pm, featuring Semi-dry Riesling 2018 and Riesling Late Harvest Select Gridley Bluff Point Vineyard 2017
