Happy birthday Riesling!

Riesling’s 589th Birthday: March 13th 2024

Born in the Rheingau region of Germany in 1435, Riesling has captured the hearts of wine lovers for centuries with its versatility, distinct character, and ability to express sense of place. From bone-dry expressions to lusciously sweet styles, Riesling has proven its adaptability across different styles from all of Germany’s 13 wine regions.

As Jan Konetzki, award-winning sommelier and wine consultant, puts it: “No other grape variety is able to offer such a broad palate. Riesling is so diverse, and that is what makes it unique.”
