A wine dinner with Julian the Riesling Whisperer was hosted at Merchants, and guests enjoyed  Julian’s magnificent Rieslings and Cabernet Merlot, including the 2008 Riesling – winner of Decanter Gold. The highlight of the evening (besides, the wines and truffles) was Julian’s impromptu Slam Poetry dedicated to an old work colleague…
