Dallas: Prost! Treffen Sie Die Weine Von Deutschland
Tuesday, September 8 - 6:00PM
When we think of German wines we often think of Rieslings from the Mosel. Germany offers many more varietals than this, varietals such as Silvaner, Spätburgunder, Muller-Thurgau, Dornfelder and Domina - wines that are all food friendly. Join us as the Bavarian Grill as we get to know the other varietals of Germany. Reservations will be accepted until September 6th. We hope to see you there!
