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.

  • Bonny Doon Vineyard Riesling Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The Washington grapes that we choose for the Sweet Riesling are picked riper than the grapes for the dry Riesling. 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

    This dry(ish) apple is delicious. On first taste, I didn't think I would like it. It was chilled. On the second glass, it was room temp. and was delicious. Read More

  • Dry Riesling 2011

    Snoothrank:

    One of the better Washington Rieslings I have had. With less residual sugar (0.9%) it really lets you get a good taste of the Riesling variety without being overly sweet. Crisp mouthfell with hints of citrus and minerals. Would pair well with Asian food as the label might suggest. Read More

  • Pacific Rim Winemakers Riesling Vin de Glacière 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nose filled with caramel. Medium to heavy mouthfell as one would expect. Coats the palate with caramel and brown sugar but not cloyingly sweet. Would make a nice desert wine that is not to sweet that it would make you sick. Great wine to price ratio. Read More
