Riesling Birthday - cover

Exactly 674 years ago today, March 13, 1435, a German administrator by the name of Klaus Kleinfish had noted on a bill of Count John IV of Katzenelnbogen that he had bought Rieslingen-type vines, so this time that what is now called Riesling has come into being and today we are celebrating the Riesling birthday.

While many still believe that Riesling is a sweet wine, so sweet, it is rather a wine with profiles of various flavors and therefore pleasant for the palates of your different guests. In gastronomy, depending on its variety, it’s raining with fish, shellfish (such as South Bay Blonde oysters taken at La Mer Fish Market, our photo), poultry and even pork

The Burg Ravensburg Riesling 2016.

The latter, which we received at Gentologie, is simply perfect. It goes really well with South Bay Blonde oysters. he’s just a little bubbly, the one we love about Riesling. Mineral notes of fruit, and good acidity, which balance the wine very well. Its little organic side will appeal to fans of the genre. To be enjoyed with fish, poultry or as an appetizer.
