Keuka Spring Rieslings rated 91 and 90 points in April 2022 issue of Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Keuka Spring glass of white wine

Nothing tastes better on a warm day than a refresing glass of chilled white wine!

Finger Lakes Rieslings are up to the task, and ours come highly recommended by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Our 2020 Humphreys Vineyard Riesling and 2020 Classic Riesling received 91 and 90 point ratings, respectively, in the April 2022 issue.

Humphreys Vineyard Riesling is described as follows,

"There's depth and intensity to the aromas of ripe apple, peach, and lemon tea on the nose. The palate shows a gentle, rounded texture yet still maintains tension and grip, with pithy lemon lifting it all up while juicy orchard-fruit flavors linger on the finish."-AP

The description of our Classic Riesling reads,

"This well-balanced sweeter style of Riesling delivers luscious flavors of peach and mango drizzled with honey, all the while lifted by a bright pink-grapefruit tone. There's an earthy tone to the finish, akin to gently sweet lemon iced tea."-AP

We invite you to see for yourself how refreshing a glass of cold Riesling can be on a warm day! Come by to taste these, or order a handful of bottles of each to chill and enjoy at home.

First of the Year Awards are in!

San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

At the recent San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, the largest competition of American Wines, our 2020 Wiltberger Vineyard Riesling was awarded Best of Class! In this year's competition, forty-eight judges evaluated 5,816 wines from nearly 1,000 wineries. Our humble Riesling was described as,

"A lug box of perfectly ripe summer peaches whose sunny flavor is drawn out with ample sugar, but thanks to the wine's acute acidity the wine is all energy and balance."

What's not to love about perfectly ripe summer peaches?

Keuka Spring Wiltberger Vineyards
