Rheinstone Cowboy German Wine Dinner at Feges BBQ in Spring Branch
July 27, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On Tuesday, July 27, Feges BBQ in Spring Branch is partnering with Wines of Germany for an event called “Rheinstone Cowboy.” From 5 to 7 p.m., a wide range of styles and varieties of German wine, including sparkling rosé, dry whites and savory reds, wine will be expertly paired with a specific dish. A flight of all five wines will be available for discounted purchase. (Please note that reservations are not required for this event.)
Co-owner Chef Erin Smith first fell in love with German wine during her years working in New York City, and that love grew even deeper while working as a bartender at Camerata Wine Bar. Now, she and local sommelier and Wines of Germany Ambassador Chris Poldoian have teamed up to show attendees just how unique and special German wines really are.
The featured wines are:
Von Buhl Sparkling Rosé with Fried Chicken: Bubbles and fried chicken are a tried and true combo. This Sekt (the German name for sparkling wine) is made in the traditional method, so think of all the savory, umami character you love in Champagne, except with a distinctly German twist.
Peter Lauer ‘Barrel X’ Riesling with Pulled Pork Nachos: This wine may challenge your expectations of the Riesling grape. Packed with Germany’s trademark acidity and complemented by just a touch of sweetness, this citrusy white wine will be served alongside Feges BBQ’s pork nachos. The electric texture of this Riesling accentuates the crispy chicharron and cuts right through the rich avocado crema.
Kruger-Rumpf Scheurebe with Beef Rib Bulgogi: Scheurebe is the grape you never knew you needed. Juicy and floral and unabashedly fruity, this vibrant white wine has everything you love in Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Albariño, all rolled into one. It’s paired with spicy Beef Rib Bulgogi; the heat pairs perfectly with the sweetness of this wine. The Kruger-Rumpf winery dates all the way back to the 1700s.
Weingut Seehof Rosé of Pinot Noir with Pork Ribs: Weingut Seehof sources this Pinot Noir from the Rheinhessen region of Germany. The soils are dominated by limestone, giving this rosé delicacy and depth.
Georg Breuer Pinot Noir with our Smoked Chicken: Germany is the third-most popular spot for Pinot Noir production (where it’s called Spätburgunder). What makes German Pinot Noir special is its spicy aromas and herbal finish — perfect with smoked poultry dabbed with Alabama white sauce! This bottling comes from a Rheingau winery called Weingut Georg Breuer, which was founded over 130 years ago and is currently run by fourth-generation winemaker Theresa Breuer.
