Northwest Riesling scene more than just Chateau Ste. Michelle
When we think of Northwest Riesling, our minds often focus on Chateau Ste. Michelle. That would seem natural because Washington’s oldest and largest winery makes more Riesling than any producer in the world. That’s right: No single winery in Germany, Austria, California or Australia makes more Riesling than Ste. Michelle.
But here in the Pacific Northwest, we are blessed with many winemakers who love to craft Riesling. The wines range from bone dry to sultry sweet, from Washington to Oregon to Idaho to British Columbia.
Here are a dozen examples of Riesling made by producers across the Pacific Northwest.
