A German Wine Dinner

with Dr. Dirk Richter, Germany
Thursday, August 24, 2017 – 6:30 pm

Join us as we welcome Dr. Dirk Richter back to Chez François. He hasn’t been in the state of Ohio for five years and we thought it fitting that we feature a late summer German Riesling dinners with one of our favorite winemakers.

Founded in 1680 as a wine export company, today the estate of Max Ferdinand Richter is owned by the same family that first purchased vineyards in Brauneberg in 1643. The Richter Estate mansion and its French baroque garden were built in 1774, and the winery buildings, dating to 1880, has one of the largest fuder oak barrel wine cellars in the Mosel area. Max Ferdinand Richter is managed and operated by Dr. Dirk Max Ferd. Richter, the ninth generation of his family to do so.
