Wine Tasting: Who is Beethoven’s Immortal Beloved?

It’s a mystery! To Whom did Beethoven address his “Immortal Beloved” letter??? 

Beethoven had a lot of love angst, part of which was spelled out in a letter he wrote to a mystery beloved one hot summer in 1812. The letter went unsent, but to whom was it actually written?

Was it a Hungarian Countess? The wealthy daughter of an Austrian diplomat? A confidante and patron of arts and letters? Or one of the many women to whom he taught piano?

We’ll never know… or will we?

Join us to examine 5 candidates for “Immortal Beloved” and taste 5 wines that we find along the way.

What will we taste?

  • Fuhrgassl-Huber, Grüner Veltliner Klassik (2018)
  • Peter Jakob Kühn, Riesling Hallgarten Rheinschiefer Trocken (2018)
  • Tasca d’Almerita, Sicilia Regaleali Bianco (2017)
  • Weinhaus Heger, Pinot Noir (2015)
  • Vinosia, Irpinia Aglianico Neromora
