Top 10 Riesling Producers Here’s another stab at a great list of producers, this time my favorite Riesling producers, in fact. Like all of the other top 10 producer lists, this one required a lot of consideration and the culling of many producers who deserve to be on a top list yet failed to make my top 10.

I know that many of you will be absolutely enraged by the various omissions and I’m looking forward to hearing from you with your lists and reasons why mine is just not acceptable. Please, bring it on! This list is not an end point but rather a starting point. Having a discussion about what criteria should be used for a list of this sort can only help us all build better lists.

My criteria are fairly simple. The wines have to be delicious and affordable! Yes, some of these wines touch $100 a bottle, but for the best example of any particular genre or style of wine, I think that is generally affordable. Look at it this way, you can get eight decent sized pours from a bottle. That means that a $100 bottle can be sampled with seven friends for about $15 a pour. To me, that remains affordable.

Enough about criteria, let’s check out the producers!
