Riesling Pizzeria Tasting with Riesling Overlord Paul Grieco!
Tuesday, July 17

Purchase tickets online here

Join Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink Chef de Cuisine Bradley Herron & Wine Director Eric Larkee as Harry’s Pizzeria welcomes Paul Grieco, 2012 James Beard Award-winning wine director/owner of NYC’s Terroir Wine Bar, to celebrate Summer of Riesling.

The evening will include Dr. L Sparkling Riesling (Dr. Loosen, Sekt, Germany NV), which MGRP describes on their blog as: “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.”


The event’s backdrop will be a pop-up gallery by Conceptual artist Zack Balber. MGFD says: “you’ll never look at Riesling the same way again.”

GALLERY SHOWING 6 pm – 7:30 pm /$40

Meet at Harry’s to preview the pop-up gallery & enjoy flowing Rieslings of all kinds & passed snacks, following by a Q&A at Locust Projects next door.
