Riesling Rendezvous in Seattle was once again an awesome conference, tasting, and networking opportunity for Riesling producers, the trade, and consumers.
First created in 2006 by Chateau Ste. Michelle in Washington, and Dr. Loosen in Germany's Mosel region, this event is Riesling Heaven for anyone in love with the world's most noble white wine. It was also great to see that, other than Germany, the Finger Lakes region had the most winery representation at the event.
The International Riesling Foundation also used the opportunity to unveil a new website (www.drinkriesling.com), series of videos, and social media program. The IRF was conceived at the 2006 event, and among other things has created the IRF Riesling Taste Profile, a popular dry-to-sweet scale now on more than 30 million bottles of Riesling in the U.S. market. It's a great way to know what you're getting in each bottle of Riesling that features the scale on the back label.
