About the Varietal:
Riesling is one of the great German grape varietals. Riesling grapes can be made into sweet wines, such as in "Eiswein", or made into dry wine. Riesling has long been appreciated for its ease in pairing with food, especially poultry and seafood. Rieslings are also great wines to sip on a warm day while relaxing outdoors.
