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.

  • Solstice Vineyard Riesling 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Nicely floral with hints of lemon verbena accenting the citrus fruit with everything bound together with a lovely, light honey aroma. Light and fresh on entry with a really waif like structure. This is lightweight and transparent with nuanced floral, heirloom apple and lightly honied flavors. Very easy to drink and while not soft is does dance ... Read More

  • Vin de Glaciã¨re 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Strong scent of lime and apple. Thick, sturdy legs that cling to the glass, but not sickly sweet and syrupy. Powerful burst of lime, peach, apple, and just a hint of tropical fruits, with an abrupt and slightly mineral finish. A very interesting dessert wine, managing to be thick and strong without any honey notes at all - this is great for s... Read More
