about the irf

The International Riesling Foundation is a not-for-profit organization devoted to increasing the awareness, understanding and enjoyment of Riesling, and to facilitating cooperation among Riesling producers and other members of the wine trade to that end.

Our vision is to have Riesling recognized and demanded internationally as the world’s most noble wine due to its diversity of styles, regional character, consistent quality and compatibility with food.

Our mission is to increase awareness, understanding, trial and sales of Riesling wines through a comprehensive, integrated system of research, communication and education.

Via this website, social media and appearances at prominent wine events, we offer:

  • News about Riesling
  • Educational resources about Riesling
  • Riesling news from our members
  • Food & wine pairing suggestions
  • News by and from luminaries in the Riesling community
