Top 10 Riesling Producers

GDP puts together his list of the best producers of this fine wine

Hermann J Wiemer

We end with a bit of a stretch. Yes, I am including a New York state producer here, after all it is my list. I have to have some fidelity to my home state. The truth is that Wiemer is producing some delicious and affordable Riesling that every Riesling-lover should be trying.

All too often, we wine lovers get all wrapped up in having the best of everything. We even build silly lists of the best wines and the best producers and then argue over them, forgetting that wine should be bringing us together, even if to disagree!

So get off your duff and track down a bottle of Wiemer’s Dry Riesling Reserve. At least taste it before you go off your rocker decrying its inclusion here. It’s $30 a bottle and freaking delicious. After tasting it we’ll see if you can seriously say it shouldn’t be included in my top 10 producers list!

  • Yes well done in identifying Donnhoff Riesling. We think it close to perfection, as not excessively limey or acid, which can be weaknesses with R. Our dry riesling from them matches well with Fish and Chips (as does most dry riesling to be fair) but also cold turkey, roast pork, and has just been ordered for the Autumn.
    Trimbach and Grosset polish Hill are others enjoyed in the past. we liked Watervale area Rieslings in past times from Australia, and if you ever get chances to taste Alsace Grand crus take them, especially if given a vineyard name or "Clos" on the label, e.g Clos St Hune. These will have that fabulous whiff of petrol and great mineral complexity and length

    Don`t miss a bottle by Leitz from the Rheingau...also, there are many great producers from the mossel like the ever full filling Fritz Haag, but I was recently surprised by those by Reinhold Haart specially those coming from the Goldtröpfchen vineyard in Piesport which might even give you dark fruits in the nose.
    Finally, from the Pfalz, where there also are a bunch of pretty good producers, I'd like to recall Koehler Ruprecht for his full bodied and evolved wines
