You’ll also have the chance to meet Martin Bergkirchner who works with the Knolls and is currently doing stage with homeschool winery J.Christopher.

Collectors Edition Black Series and Knoll Riesling

Wow! Great Picture from Maximilian #Riedel featuring the collectors edition #BlackSeries and #Knoll Riesling in the background.  #AustrianWineUSA
2000 Domaine de la #RomanéeConti #LaTâche from #Burgundy served on special occasion. Glass in action is the #Sommeliers #RedBlack from the #Riedel collectors series called the #BlackSeries. Nothing suits a #PinotNoir better than the Burgundy #GrandCru glass a design of #ClausRiedel developed in 1958.

Knoll’s Riesling and Thanksgiving Wines

Tasting Table, @TastingTable, has some great suggestions from sommeliers around the nation for great #ThanksgivingWines. Brian Kalliel of Mélisse in Santa Monica recommends #Knoll Federspiel #Riesling. We agree!! #AustrianWine #Wachau #RieslingisWinning

Graham Tatomer’s Translation of Austrian Riesling

More publicity for #CA winemaker #GrahamTatomer whose visceral translation of #Austrian #Riesling is something to behold. In a world that’s “all about me,” it’s impressive that @TatomerWines #Tatomer continually tips his hat to his time with the #Knoll Family in the famed #Wachau appellation – citing them as a great influence and inspiration. His direct and electrifying wines are a perfect bridge for those who would like to better understand Austrian style Riesling but may be shy to jump in to trying wine from an unfamiliar place. Plus, he’s a fantastic winemaker across the board; check out his wines. Way to go Graham!
