Oktoberfest starts in September!!! Oktoberfest is an annual German celebration. This year it starts on September 17th to October 3rd. Of course beer and wine play a major role in these festivities. For wine selections, I recommend Alsatian, Riesling, and Gewürztraminer from All Star Wines. For the meal, my choice would be Choucroute which is made with ham, three types of sausages, over a bed of sauerkraut.
