Riesling

Riesling

Riesling is a white grape that originated in the Rhine region of Germany.  It is a high acid grape that is quite aromatic.  It can range from dry to sweet, and be made into sparkling or ice wine.  It is highly terroir-expressive so its flavor is greatly influenced by the area in which it is raised.  Our Riesling has flavors of apples, pears and citrus.  It is one white wine which can be aged.  It survives our winters better than any of our other varieties, and it is an aggressive grower here.
 
We produce a Semi Sweet Riesling, which is lighty sweet and a Dry Riesling which is quite crisp!

It pairs well with many foods, due to its balance of acidity and sweetness.  Try it with fish, pork or even stronger Thai or Chinese dishes.  It is a great wine to enjoy with cheese and other hors d’oeuvres.
