    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.

    State Teams GOTV for the 2022 Midterms

    Join the Democrats Abroad State Teams to discuss GOTV plans for the 2022 Midterm elections. From determining which races need the most attention to addressing voter support needs, it's all hands on deck to ensure that we keep Congress and flip even more Senate seats.

    We'll also look at critical state races from the Gubernatorial to the State Legislatures with a view to key issues and voting rights. It's also a good to chance to look at the redistricting process and see where we will need to focus our efforts after the lines are redrawn.    

    In the meantime, join us on Slack to find out what the states are planning and get involved.

    If you have any questions, please write to [email protected].

    Oktoberfest Celebration: Online Beer Tasting

    Despite Oktoberfest being cancelled again this year, Democrats Abroad Germany has just the thing for you to celebrate: an online beer tasting!

    DA Germany will gather online on Saturday, October 30th at 7pm CEST for the 13th Annual Democrats Abroad Oktoberfest Extravaganza! Instead of meeting in our usually reserved gallery seats, we will meet online from the comforts of our home for an online beer tasting.

    Our online Oktoberfest ticket (€46) includes:

    • 5 beers 
    • 1 tasting glass
    • Professional moderation and guidance during the tasting in English from Vagabund Brauerei

    The tasting will last approximately 1-1.5 hours. The beer and glass will be sent to you prior to the event from the tasting company. These tasting packages can only be sent to addresses in Germany and EU member states. We encourage other country committees to join in on the fun, but please note that if your shipping address is outside of Germany, ticket costs are €51 (an additional €5 is added to the ticket price to account for shipping costs).

    To reserve your tickets, you must complete this registration form (click here to open the form). In order to receive the beer kits in time, you must RSVP by October 11, 2021.
