2013 Wine Resolutions – #3 – Revel with Riesling

by Monica Bennion on January 3, 2013

Keeping with the theme of Resolutions #1 & #2, we hope you will rediscover the “new” old-world style of Riesling.  In the recent past, Riesling saturated the market, and the wine world was inundated with overly sweet and incredibly unbalanced Rieslings.  In an effort to erase the stereotype, with great success I might add, winemakers are focusing on making crisp, low-alcohol Rieslings with a balanced ratio of residual sugar and acidity.  Being German trained, Scott has always made his Rieslings in a dry or off-dry fashion, and our 2009 Jana Mendocino Valley Old Vine Riesling is no exception.  If you enjoy dessert wines, our 2010 Angel Eis is a sweet but balanced dessert wine crafted with high-quality Riesling grapes.  Click HERE to learn more on Riesling styles.

Africa?, you say.  You might be surprised to know that Africa has eight countries with a higher GDP per capita than China and 15 higher than India.  With its burgeoning middle class, Africa offers vast potential.  It was noted by an April A.P. news report that seven of the top ten fastest growing economies in the world are countries in Africa.   Nairobi, Kenya is at the center of the action and has become one of the most important economic and political centers in Africa.  The third largest UN facility in the world is in Nairobi as are every international organization.
