NYWCA Wine & Spirits Committee hosted the Riesling & Roti event at Saar Indian Bistro.  Members enjoyed six Rieslings from all over the world (from theFinger Lakes, NY to Central Serbia) paired with traditional Indian dishes. Wine experts Danica Stitz and Stephanie Teuwen selected a wide range of Rieslings to highlight the distinct and various flavor profiles of Rieslings.  Guests learned that Riesling could range from bone-dry to fully sweet and that Riesling is a wine grower’s grape as it is truly expressive of its terroir. While many guests were not fans of Riesling at the beginning of the event, everyone left with a newfound love for this full-bodied wine that paired perfectly with the spicy delicious Indian food.
