Cherry Circle Room's wine director Andrew Algren will welcome writer John Haeger and winemaker Morten Hallgren for a Riesling Seminar Dinner on Sept. 12. The dinner will showcase wines from Ravines alongside wines from Weingut Malat in Austria’s Kremstal region.
Morten Hallgren is the owner of Ravines Wine Cellars, a boutique winery in the Finger Lakes. John Haeger is an historian, educator and wine writer who just released his 3rd wine-focused book: Riesling Rediscovered: Bold, Bright, and Dry. Michael Malat, Weingut Malat’s 9th-generation winemaker, will not be present, but John will introduce the Malat Rieslings, atypically low in alcohol, bright with acid, intensely flavored and very dry.
Morten and John’s wine picks will be paired with a 4-course dinner from Chef Pete Coenen, in an intimate and rare chance to meet the country’s foremost riesling experts.
