Chateau Ste. Michelle winery was among the first to plant Riesling in Washington state more than 40 years ago, and continues to champion the grape to this day; helping to usher in its recent rise in popularity. Wine connoisseurs around the world are currently enjoying a “Riesling Renaissance” with Chateau Ste. Michelle producing the #1 selling Riesling in America. Riesling is more than just sweet – the varietal offers styles for every meal, with a natural balance of acidity and sugar, lightness of alcohol, and fruit-forward flavors.

Riesling is great as a sipping wine on its own, but its versatility is what makes it the perfect food wine. From tapas and appetizers to fish or poultry, and almost anything in between, Chateau Ste. Michelle has you covered making every meal special. Try it with hearty mains (like dishes with chili-laced sauces and spicy marinades), sides such as roasted root vegetables, or fresh oysters and appetizers of cured meats and cheeses. The choice of Riesling styles makes them capable of bringing out the best in every menu, including the spice and zest of Asian, Mexican, Indian and more.”

Review of Product: I received all 3 varieties to try and we really enjoyed these wines.  I prefer white wine to red and enjoy a sweeter wine like the riesling.  The wines were delicious on their own or accompanies by food.  My favorite of the 3 was the 2011 Columbia Valley variety – we had that with fish for dinner one night and I loved the sweet and subtle notes, it was a perfect pairing! The Harvest Select we paired with Thai takeout and thought it was delicious as well.  It complimented the spicy shrimp dish I ordered! The dry variety was my least favorite though I still liked it.  We had this one on its own one night when I needed some extra de-stressing! If you enjoy wine, definitely try a Riesling – they are deliciously sweet!

I received a sample of these products to review at no charge but my opinions remain my own.
