Dear German Wine Society Members:

This is to invite you to our upcoming tasting and presentation with Annette Schiller (www.ombiasypr.com, a long–standing member of our chapter.

Please join us Friday, April 11, at 7:30 p.m. for our tasting at the Harbor Square Club Room. Marilyn Scarbrough has graciously reserved this venue in her apartment complex on the waterfront in Southwest Washington, near Arena Stage and Fort McNair.

Annette, who is originally from Germany has been involved in wine since her student days in Mainz, one of the 9 wine capitals of the world. She took classes at the university and later at the oenological school in Geisenheim to gain more knowledge on wine. She organizes wine tours to Germany and France, and wine events in the Washington DC area. Her wide network in the wine community allows her access to top estates and winemakers.

Her presentation will focus on new developments in Germany. She will talk about the new wine regions in eastern Germany, the new VDP classification, and the red wine boom, among other topics.

The tasting list will include wines from the Saale-Unstrut region, red wines, and wines made by the upcoming young generation of winemakers as well as traditional German wines from the Mosel, Nahe and the Rheingau. Annette is still working on the wine list. A detailed list will be included in the next announcement.

The address for our tasting is 500 N St SW, Washington, DC. 20024-4605. It is easy to find and parking will be available inside the complex on a first-come-first-serve basis. Tell the gatehouse guard that you are Marilyn Scarbrough's guest, and they will show you where to park and which elevator to take to the club room.

The price for this tasting is $40 for members and $47 for non-members. The deadline is Monday, April 7. Please send your check with your reservation to ensure a seat is reserved for you.
