As the 31 days of German Riesling continue, we want to honour the country for its incredible grape. Germany dedicates a considerable amount of their vineyards to the crisp white, producing 61.4% (http://www.germanwineusa.com/pdf/riesling-vineyards-worldwide.pdf) of the world’s Riesling. No other country can come close to their production.

Next up is Australia (12.1%), followed by France (9.9%), the United States (4.9%), Austria (4.8%), New Zealand (2.5%) and Canada (1.3%).

Germany’s long-standing history with the fabulous grape and creative winemaking practices has rightfully given the country the reputation of being experts and ambassadors for the crisp white wine.

The country’s rocky soils, diverse vineyards and cool climate have produced some of our favourite bottles of Riesling and we hope you’ve embraced the Motherland and its wine queens just as much as we have. And if you haven’t then hurry up, there are only 11 days left in the 31 days of Germany Riesling!
