Those who know Riesling intimately, and drink it often, can argue that the top Rieslings are some of the greatest white wines in the world. It is interesting to think about its greatness in comparison to another top white variety – Chardonnay. Chardonnay is a chameleon, having a great affinity for expressing winemaking techniques and terroir while never having a distinct varietal dominance on the nose. Alternatively, no matter where it is grown, how it is vinified, be it sweet, dry or sparkling, Riesling will always let you know, to some degree, that it is there.

  • 677113Baja Wendy I am an expat Designer and Journalist living in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, and have recently written a couple of stories and conducted radio interviews with some of the Baja winemakers. There have been two Wine and Food Festivals in the past couple of weeks...one in the Cabo area and the other in Todos Santos...spotlighting the wines of Baja, with wonderful food pairing dinners the night before. Besides all the artists who live here, we are also known for our chefs here in Todos Santos. I think your readers would find the history of Baja's winemaking area and what the vineyards are producing, very interesting. Wendy Rains, wendy@buildinginbaja.com
