      Me too. Not only do Riesling grapes tend to make complex, interesting wine, flavorful wines, they truly pair with (almost) everything!

  1. Enjoyed your interview with Paul Grieco — Riesling making progress, but still a long way to go before it enjoys the recognition and comfort level with the U.S. wine trade and consumers that it deserves. As it happens, I work with the Rheingau estate of Schloss Johannisberg, the epicenter of Riesling. If you’d be interested in meeting SJ winemaker/GM Christian Witte on one of his future trips to NYC, or being included in any SJ sample programs we conduct, I’d welcome the chance to connect. Other estates and producers we work with include: Livio Felluga, Castello di Monsanto, Tenuta di Capezzana, Mionetto, Rocca Sveva and Pertinace in Italy, Champagne Bruno Paillard and Chapoutier Dom. de Bila-Haut (Roussillon), Concha y Toro in Chile and Trivento in Argentina. As with SJ, if you would like to hear from us re tastings, winemaker visits and sample programs, could I trouble you to forward contact info at which to reach you? Hope this of interest and looking forward to hearing further.

      Hi Jane,
      Thanks for reaching out. I’d love to meet the winemaker of S.J. and participate in your sample program. I’ve been intrigued by German wines ever since finishing a few books on the history, and evolution of the regions. I had to study the new wine laws for my Diploma WSET exam and am itching to flex my knowledge. Please keep in touch or email me at wineandword@gmail.com. Cheers!
