Rudi Wiest Wine Dinner Menu Link

We’re pleased to announce that our second wine dinner of the fall will feature Rudi Wiest of Rudi Wiest Selections.  Rudi is a legend in the wine industry, having imported many of the very best German wine estates since the 1970s.  The dinner will showcase wines from Wagner-Stempel (Rheinhessen), JJ Prum (Mosel), Raumland (Rheinhessen), Schloss Hallburg (Franken) & Meyer-Nakel (Ahr).  While Germany’s wine reputation is built on the classic Rieslings, both dry and sweet, this dinner will be a great venture into a number of grapes and regions producing exciting wine across Germany.  Silvaner makes deliciously savory white wines that are excellent with vegetables.  And red wine, especially Pinot Noir, is established as a world class grape in several German wine regions including the tiny Ahr which makes some of the most prized Pinots in the world.  We hope you can join us as Rudi guides us through the exciting world of German wine!

Tannin has been featured in several recent national media articles including last Friday’s USA Today.  Larry Bleiberg writes “The bar is right at home in the city’s hip and historic Crossroads Art District of modified warehouses and other industrial buildings.  Along with the setting Cappiali appreciates the variety:  Customers can try wines in a 2-ounce taster or by the glass or bottle.  The international selection is also noteworthy. “Here you might find a New Zealand pinot” he says.”  The full article can be found at
