Riesling is a white grape variety which originated in the Rhine region of Germany. It is the most grown variety in Germany, totaling over 21% of the country's grape acreage. The grape can be used to make dry, semi-sweet, sweet and sparkling white wines. Therefore, we figured what better way to celebrate Riesling than hosting a wine tasting featuring a selection of our favorite German and Austrian Rieslings that exhibit the grape's versatility.
