Dear wine friends,

summer is approaching its peak and it gets hotter and hotter. People start asking: when is you annual Summer Riesling Party. Well it is about time for our annual Riesling party.

Please join us for a fun wining and dining early evening event with genuine German food.

When: Sunday, August 14, 2016, 5.00 pm
Where: at the “Schillers” in McLean, VA
What to bring: 1 bottle of Riesling per person OR your special German wine which can also be other than Riesling that you would love to share with your fellow wine aficionados.

I just brought back some bottles of delicious Pinot-Blancs (did you know that Germany is # 1 producer world-wide of Pinot Blanc? And of course Germany is # 1 producer of Riesling world-wide) from the easternmost, internationally unknown, but gorgeous German wine regions. I would love for you to taste these delicious wines and to entice you to explore these regions further.

Please RSVP ( and I will send you a confirmation and the exact address.

Christian and I are very much looking forward to seeing you on August 14th at our house.

Annette & Christian
