Oysters and Riesling for summer

Vin Master, Atherton Mill's wine shop, hosts an oyster fest June 20, with wine pairings, for $25. Guests get all-you-can-eat oysters, both raw and cooked, from Lucky Fish (another Atherton purveyor) and at least four wines chosen by Chris Woodrow of Vin Master.

Expect a Riesling or three, for the first day of summer and the Summer of Riesling, a movement begun in New York that espouses the idea of pouring nothing else all summer. Vin Master participates in the movement. "Riesling is an awesome wine in general," Woodrow said in a press release. "... Like a good lemonade, you keep the tartness, but need a little sugar to balance it out."
