Villa Bellangelo is proud to offer a unique Finger Lakes wine tasting experience in the form of our Riesling Experience. All Riesling Experience's are by appointment only, and cost $25.00.
The Riesling Experience is a 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 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 single varietal tasting experience where we introduce you to multi-vintage, multi-style Rieslings. Whether it's skin-fermented, autochthonous neutral barrel ferments, or stainless steel inoculated Rieslings, we have something you'll love. This tasting also goes deep into the history of the grape, and the reason we grow Riesling in the FLX.
The Riesling Experience will consist of a tasting of at least 8 Rieslings produced by Villa Bellangelo. The tasting may include tank samples of unreleased Rieslings as available.
All Riesling Experience tastings are conducted using Schott Zwiesel Riesling glasses. Riesling Experience guests will also be given a tour, as personnel and staffing at the winery permits.
