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. As the American palate evolved in recent years toward wines with greater complexity and crisper acidity, the popularity of Pacific Rim Dry Riesling grew. 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.

  • Riesling Made With Organic Grapes 2013


    This 2013 Riesling was another clear-out from Grocery outlet, selling for $2.99 rather than the $10-12 it is supposed to sell for. At that price, it's a screaming bargain. I wish this were a bit drier, as it's lightly sweet, despite the label claiming it to be between moderately dry and moderately sweet. It would make a fine aparatif, as well... Read More

  • Pacific Rim Eufloria Aromatic White Blend Washington NV


    Spice, potpourri and lemongrass on the nose make for an intriguing blend of aromas with some tangerine and rose petal and a bit of sea spray. Honeyed and floral in the mouth and sweetness bordering on off-dry with peach and clementine notes and a clean finish of apple and lemon. Read More

  • Now that the name Sauterne, is reserved for those wines from that region, how do I find the type of wine produced in the 1960's, that used to be labeled " Sauterne".This wine was from California and was an excellent compliment to poultry. I have no idea what wines to try.Thanks Read More
