We’re almost a week into the 31 Days of German Riesling, the nationwide celebration of Germany’s King of grapes, that sweeps through independent merchants, restaurants and wine bars every July! Throughout the month there will be promotions, offers and events lined up to celebrate this fantastic grape variety and, with over 200 sites taking part in the UK, there will definitely be something for everyone to enjoy.
We’ll be posting some of our top picks on this page, so read on for tips on ways to get involved…
