We know what you’re thinking:, “Isn’t all Riesling really sweet, and a Granny wine?” Although you wouldn’t be entirely incorrect, we’d like to take an opportunity to change your perception. If one were to preform a national poll American swith Sommeliers and ask them what is the most misunderstood grape variety— is, and their favorite for pairing with food— pairings, the answer would almost unanimouslymost certainly be Riesling!
