Riesling somw how has fallen into obscurityin recent decades which is baffling. It is the quintessential grape of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer regions of Germany responsible for the indescribable “pradikat” wines of the regions.

This wine runs less than $10 and is the perfect summer afternoon aperitife as I get ready to grill a couple veal chops. Raise a glass to one of our RARE sunny days in Maine!
