About Riesling

Riesling is a white grape variety that originated in the Rhine Valley of Germany and is now found across the world in places such as Austria, Australia, France, Washington, and more. Riesling is often thought to be a sweet wine, but many expressions exist today. In Germany, these styles range from lightly alcoholic, sweet styles such as Kabinett, Spatlese, and Auslese to rich, lusciously sweet styles such as Eiswein and Trockenbeerenauslese, to bone dry Trocken styles.
