Wines To Find, Ep 84: All Things Riesling Featuring the 3 Dryness/Sweet Levels
Show Notes

Wines: Leitz Eins Zwei Drei, Leitz Rheingau Riesling, Leitz Rüdesheimer Magdalenenkreuz
Guest: Doug Aylard, Owner of Vino Garage

Riesling can be a complicated grape. "Much maligned" as our guest, Vino Garage owner, Doug Aylard very aptly states in this episode. While it is thought by some to simply be a sweet wine to avoid, it is enthusiastically embraced by many somms as one of the most food friendly, versatile - and, yes, complex! - wines.

We knew we wanted another voice when we decided to tackle Riesling (someone who could pronounce some of those terms!) so we invited Doug to join us. With the goal of showing the three different sweet/dryness levels that can be found in Riesling, Doug selected these wines.
Listen as we taste through and discuss how/why Riesling has so many different sweetness levels, and where in the world, other than simply Germany, the best Riesling is produced.

If you've ever been a Riesling doubter - this is a MUST LISTEN to learn how and why so many wine experts enthusiastically embrace Riesling. This episode takes our "How to Make the Most of Your Wine Store Visit" concept to a whole new level (anyone else ever take the store owner home with you for a podcast interview?!?). Listen Today!
