When there is occasion worth toasting, try Dr. Loosen, Riesling Sekt, Germany NV instead of champagne.
A standout value in the sparkling category on our wine list at MGFD, it’s what we’re whipping out on July 17 to toast guest chef Bradley Herron’s recognition as a 2012 Eater Young Gun, as one of the pairings for his passed snacks at Riesling Pizzeria.
With a nose of fresh cut green apple and elderflower, this Sekt (or sparkling) comes from the world-renowned Loosen wine estate in Germany on the steep, slate-soil vineyards of the Mosel region. The resulting wine offers a beautifully weighted, delicate palate with a juicy touch of sweetness left to balance its naturally brisk acidity. Drink it alone as a celebratory aperitif, or with us at the start of a great evening. Bradley’s full menu is now available below, complete with a Riesling vinegar he’s been aging for several weeks to our delight. Get your tickets here while they last!
