November 2023 Wine of the Month
Emerging from the Rhine region of Germany, Riesling stands as one of the world’s foremost white grape varieties. Within the United States, Washington’s Columbia Valley has established itself as the nation’s leading Riesling-producing region, showcasing an exceptional harmony between ripeness and acidity.
While many American wine drinkers tend to associate Riesling with sweetness, it’s worth noting that Riesling wines can encompass a spectrum from bone-dry to lusciously sweet and dessert-like. Savor the delightful interplay of sweetness and invigorating acidity in our 2022 Riesling.
