Saturday August 16th l pm & 3:30pm For Reservations Call: Teller Wines 302-644-7400 RiesSng A Noble Grape Riesling (reece-Iing) is a grape that can produce the finest white wines that range from dry to very sweet. Its reputation is still tainted because of poor quality sweet wines that came into this country in the lg60's and early 1970's. German laws passed In the lg70's restricted the use of adding sugar to the highest quality wines. Many Rieslings available today are dry, very tasty and usually a great value. Some of the best wines that we tasted this year are German Rieslings from their stellar 2001 vintage. Ratzenberger Estate, Germany Famous for their Riesling Some great values are the Keller QbA trocken, Ratzenberger Kabinett trocken and the Ratzenberger Kabinett halbtrocken.
