Uncorked: WeinCraft

So refreshing!
Wines of Germany is introducing a brand new summer promotion at select Washington D.C. restaurants and retail shops as part of a nationwide, summer-long celebration of the distinct quality, unique versatility, and artistry of German wine. Check out WeinCraft!   

From bright, complex, fruit-driven reds to fresh, light, and elegant whites, Germany offers a style of wine for every palate and every occasion. Made from grapes grown on the steep slopes and in protected valleys along the rivers of Germany’s 13 wine regions, Germanwines have an unsurpassed ability to express a “sense of place.” Also known as “terroir,” German wines are defined by the distinct climates and soils in which they’re grown, and are based on centuries-old traditions, expertise, and a dedication to selecting the finest grapes.

Whether you’re looking for a dry or full-bodied Riesling or are in the mood for a glass of Pinot, Germany has you covered. With about two thirds of Germany’s vineyard areas planted with white grapes and about a third with red, the names to know are Riesling, Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris), and Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir).

The best way to learn about German wine is through tasting – so we encourage you to visit the participating WeinCraft restaurants and retail shops and discover! 

MINA Group’s Bourbon Steak D.C. and Wit & Wisdom will each be pouring three German wines by the glass from July 1st – August 31st. We hope you’ll stop by to discover the unique versatility and exceptional pairing ability of German wines—not to mention enjoy our WeinCraft-themed tattoos, coasters and bottle stoppers!
