Federweisser, A German Riesling Celebration
Celebrate the harvest as they do in Germany with pairings of Federweisser and Zwielbelkuchen.   Federweisser, or "feather-white" in German, refers to a young, slightly fermented white grape juice. This delicious cold beverage is often served with Zwielbelkuchen, an onion pie or tart. Different regions of Germany favor different versions of this traditional dish - similar to Amercan onion quiche or to onion pizza.

The evening will feature different types of savory onion tart for guests to taste.  We hope that you will join us and vote on your favorite version of Onion Tart! 

Federweisser Small Plate Menu
Cheese & Charcuterie Platter including Chicken Liver Pate & Pickles. Wine pairings include Pinot Noir & Rieslings.

Main Course:
