"Riesling in Many Languages" - More on the Family

     If you enjoyed the earlier post about cepage and families (varietals)  in wine, or just wanted to go a little further with the idea, you should head over to Wine Enthusiast to check out a recent post on their site. The post is titled "Riesling in Many Languages," and it discusses in some detail the different branches of the riesling family in Germany, France, Austria, parts of the US, and New Zealand. These good folks have included great info on pairing and where you might choose one over another in certain situation. The article also provides a list of "top producers," and recommendations which are of course a little subjective, but an excellent guideline nonetheless.
    Hopefully you're curious to know more, so head on over to Wine Enthusiast to check out the article!

  1. I do love a good dry Riesling myself and remember back in the 70s in the US Riesling equalled icky-sweet white wine. Riesling's had a bad rap back home for far too long. It's good to live in a place where a variety of Rieslings from different countries can be fairly easily had!
