Riesling Update


There has been a lot of hype about how the 2015 vintage has been stupendous for the Riesling grape. Never before have the stars aligned so perfectly as in 2015. Yes, yes, we’ve heard all of this hoopla before. But, all kidding aside, the word on the street, the boulevard, and the highway is that THIS is the vintage to back up the truck and go deep in Rieslings!

Join us as we sit down with the winex.com guys, Kyle Meyer and Tristen Beamon to talk about some of the past vintages, along with what we can expect from the 2015 Rieslings from Germany, Alsace, and Austria.

BTW, we’d like to give a shout-out and thank you to Richard Thomas in Texas whose request was an inspiration for this show.

    I enjoyed this particular podcast moreso than most others – great conversation and information! Was the Gobelsburg Austrian Riesling the last of the 4? Thanks, Don
