More than any other wine, Riesling expresses its “terroir”— the soil and climate characteristics of where it is grown.
The world’s most diverse wine in terms of style, aroma, and flavor profile, Riesling ranges from bone dry to seductively sweet, and with an array of fragrances that include slate, petrol and ripe peaches.
Not surprisingly, the world’s Riesling regions are also highly diverse, from the traditional regions of Europe to New World locations in both the northern and southern hemispheres. And while Riesling is generally considered a “cool climate” grape variety, stunning examples are now being made in warmer climates as well.
