We are really excited about this one.  It takes a rare amount of dedication (and a lot of talent) to become a Master Sommelier.  Not many people understand wine the way these people do.  In fact, only 170 people have ever pulled it off (that's worldwide, all-time).  We are very lucky to be hosting one of those people, Laura Williamson, for a dinner featuring the wines of Rudi Wiest Selections.  Rudi has been bringing in some of Germany’s finest wines for over 30 years, and these days that doesn’t just mean Riesling, either.  The Germans are now making very fine wines from a wide variety of grapes, both white and red (the Pinot Noirs have recently become especially delicious).  Come and learn about the growing landscape of German fine wine with someone who knows it better than almost anybody.
