Bellangelo's Riesling Experience
Villa Bellangelo is proud to offer a unique Finger Lakes wine tasting experience in the form of our Riesling Experience. Beginning on February 22, 2014, Bellangelo will begin offering an optional VIP wine tasting flight that focuses exclusively on Riesling. The tasting is designed to be an enjoyable and educational guided tasting, and all participants receive a copy of the upcoming Riesling handbook, Riesling: The Bellangelo Experience. The book serves as an introductory guide to Bellangelo's Rieslings, terroir in the Finger Lakes, the history and vinification of the varietal, and also includes some recipes for pairing your favorite Riesling with a great meal.
The Riesling Experience will consist of a tasting of at least 6 Rieslings currently produced by Villa Bellangelo. The tasting may include tank samples of the unreleased Rieslings from the 2013 vintage as available. The current line-up of available wines includes:
- 2012 Dry Riesling
- 2011 Dry Riesling
- 2012 Semi-Dry Riesling
- 2011 Semi-Dry Riesling
- 2012 1866 Reserve Riesling
- 2012 Gibson Vineyard Riesling
All Riesling Experience tasting are conducted using Riedel Riesling glasses. Riesling Experience guests will also be given a tour, as personnel and staffing at the winery permits.
