First released by Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon Vineyard in 1992, Pacific Rim Dry Riesling quickly gained a loyal following among Riesling lovers. Known for its fresh and bright characteristics, the wine was a welcome alternative to over-oaked, one-dimensional white wines.

Demand and enthusiasm for Pacific Rim Dry Riesling continued to gain momentum — and the excitement around the wine inspired a radical idea... the creation a winery exclusively dedicated to Riesling. In August of 2006, a small band of Bonny Doon expats moved to the Northwest from California with a common desire to craft the best Riesling in America... thus, Pacific Rim became its own winery. At Pacific Rim, we are passionate about Riesling (in fact, nearly 90% of Pacific Rim's production is comprised of Riesling wines); we are passionate about crafting world-class Riesling; and we are passionate about extolling the wondrous virtues of Riesling.

    Snoothrank:

    I have never found a wine I like as much as Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling. It is light, refreshing, and perfect for summer. I like it chilled or room temperature. It's also great mixed 50/50 with orange juice. Read More

I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More

We use a small amount of yeast to encourage the fermentation to stick or keep it from becoming completely dry. We ferment at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. Like our Dry Riesling, this is another no oak, no malolactic wi... Read More
