Riesling’s history traces back to the Rhine wine region of Germany, where the first reference to the wine was recorded in 1435 in the storage inventory of the high noble court of Count John IV of Katzenelnbogen. From its beginnings, it seems the wine was the preferred elixir of German nobility, who transported bottles with them throughout their conquests and business dealings across Europe.

Riesling is a deliciously refreshing aromatic white wine that is native to growing areas along the Rhine River in Germany. It boasts crisp flavors of apples, apricots, peaches, and pears along with high levels of acidity. Riesling is one of only a few wines that has its own unique bottle shape, which is tall, slender glass and easy to spot on the shelf. Riesling arrives in a range of styles from bone dry to sweet dessert wines to sparkling. Riesling  is one of just a few white wines that can age for decades.Riesling can pair with all food types but its high acidity and natural sugars make it a great match for spicy cuisines.
