Now There's a Rap for Riesling
Well, that's one way to publicize German wines
This riesling rap may even rival that "Wine Country Rap" out of San Francisco this year. In case you needed a soundtrack while you drink your rieslings, the Wines of Germany (a company meant to promote, well, you know, wines of Germany) released a rap video dedicated to the varietal. The tune, called "German Riesling Rap (Must Be Seduktion)" features a swagged out rapper and a long-haired "wine scientist," classing it up with a glass or two.
Sadly, the riesling "Seduktion" doesn't exist — but we wish it did. And we'd really like to stroll the vineyards with that German "wine scientist," Doktor Hans (especially if he dons that grape costume).
