Saturday (7/15) 12:00 to 3:00 --Terry Theise Selections


"No one man has introduced Americans to more great wines than Terry Theise of Terry Theise Estate Selections," claims Food and Wine Magazine, who voted Terry Theise "Importer of the Year" in 2005. Join us this Saturday as we taste some of Terry's exciting German and Austrian wines, and look forward to new arrivals from Terry Theise for the Fall season.

Hiedler, Grüner Veltliner, Loess, 2005

$10.99 (regularly $12.99)

One of the best Austrian wine values of the incredible 2005 vintage, this wine shows lemony and rhubarb fruit characteristics, good palate weight with elegant texture. Delicious with salads, grilled vegetables, shrimp, virtually anything.

Hirsch, Grüner Veltliner, Heligenstein, 2004

$16.49 (regularly $19.99)

A bit richer and spicer, this wine has more yellow fruit flavors (peach, meyer lemon) as well as intense minerality. It is equally at home with grilled swardfish or roasted chicken dishes, even with stronger sauces such as mustard.

Schloss Gobelsberg, Riesling, Von Urgestein, 2004

$16.49 (regularly $19.99)

This is an up-and-coming international star; the wine is an incredible value. From young vines in the Grand Crus Gaisberg and Heiligenstein, this wine has striking complexity and minerality.

Theo Minges, Riesling, Halbtrocken, 2004

$13.99 (regularly $16.99)

A fresh, dry style of Riesling from the Pfalz, this wine is a delicious aperitif; or pair it with salads, Asian cuisines, or your favorite grilled preparations of poultry or seafood.

Kerpen Wehlener, Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett, 2005

$15.99 (regularly $18.99)

Excellent value single-vineyard Riesling from the Mosel. Appley and fresh, with hints of pink grapefruit, smoke and mineral.

Schmitt Wagner, Longuicher Herrenberg, Riesling Spätlese, 2004

$16.49 (regularly $19.99)

Produced from some of the oldest vines in the Mosel, this wine is described as a "sleeper" by importer Terry Theise. Classic slate minerality appears in this complex wine.
