Riesling, more than any white varietal, speaks to place. Oregon’s uniquely cool climate, naturally low yields, and ancient volcanic and marine sedimentary soils give unique character to the wines that our small, family winemakers craft. It is this combination that we believe makes Oregon one of America’s best places to grow world-class Riesling.

Whether you enjoy Riesling bone dry or with a kiss of sweetness, you will find a wine of impeccable balance and complexity. Many of Oregon’s Riesling producers now employ the IRF Taste Profile Scale to help you select a wine to your preference.

Riesling is where many consumers begin to learn the magic of wine, and where sophisticated wine drinkers return to complete their journey. Wherever you are on the wine road, we invite you to visit Oregon.
