A very special wine tasting is scheduled noon to 5:00 PM, Saturday, February 19, at Walt Churchill’s Market, 3320 Briarfield. Maumee, (419) 794-4000.

Special guest will be Dirk Richter, head of Max Ferd Richter, one of the finest wine estates in the German Mosel Valley. This is a historic winery that has been family owned for more than 300 years. It is one of the sparkling jewels of the wine world.

German wines are delicious but not as well known to some as those from California and France. The tasting will feature both dry and sweet wines. Cost for the tasting is $20.

"Guests like Dirk Richter are not something to be taken lightly," said Austin Beeman, wine manager for Walt Churchill's Market Briarfield location."It is an incredible honor that he is taking five hours from his American schedule to spend with us. We rarely see this caliber of wine guest in Northwest Ohio. I would love to show him a large and warm welcome."

Austin interviewed Mr. Richter for his video blog. Here is an example of what you can expect at the wine tasting.
