If beer isn’t really your thing, but you still want to participate in Oktoberfest festivities, Democrats Abroad Germany has just the thing for you: an online wine tasting!
In celebration of Oktoberfest, DA Germany will gather online on Saturday, September 25 from 7-9pm CEST for a lovely wine tasting night hosted by DA Berlin’s Aimee M. Male. To attend the event, we are requesting a €10 donation.
In order to participate in the tasting, you will need to bring your own bottle of wine. Any wine will do - so grab your favorite or try something new with some of Aimee’s suggestions:
- German Riesling (either labeled Trocken, or Kabinett Trocken; or Feinherb)
- German Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir)
- German Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc)
- California Cabernet Sauvignon
- California Zinfandel
- California Chardonnay
An Oktoberfest Prize Draw will also take place throughout the two Oktoberfest events. Click here for more information.
About Our Wine Expert
Originally from San Francisco, Aimee has worked in the wine world for more than 20 years — from selling wines for U.S. retail stores, to making wine in the south of France and scouting new winemaking talents in Europe to bring to consumers in the United States. Currently a marketing manager and buyer for a major U.S. wine importer and a diploma candidate with the Wine & Spirits Education Trust based in London, she has made it her personal and professional goal to help wine drinkers navigate the often unnecessarily complicated world of wine, through better understanding the mechanics of taste. By learning more about how and why we taste what we do in a glass of wine, Aimee believes anyone can be a wine “expert.” She has lived in Berlin with her partner since 2006.
The tasting will be held on Zoom and we will send participants the meeting log-in information 48 hours before the event.
In case you’re interested: we’re also hosting an online beer tasting on October 30th from 7-9pm CEST! For more information about the online beer tasting, click here.
**Please remember that Democrats Abroad may only accept donations from U.S. citizens.**
