This Riesling exhibits aromas of honeysuckle, lychee and grapefruit, with a hint of nutmeg. The taste is bright and fresh, delivering full, classic Riesling flavors of tropical fruit and citrus. The acid and the sweetness levels are perfectly balanced for an excellent mouthfeel. This intriguing wine is delightful as an aperitif or served with fruits, cheeses and a variety of light entrees.
Wine maker notes
Since 1883, five generations of our family have handcrafted fine wines that express the very best of our vineyards and winemaking expertise. Our Estate Grown Riverbank Riesling is located in Arroyo Seco appellation which is defined by a unique geological feature called the Arroyo Seco Cone. Composed of soils, water sources, and wind streams that differentiate it from the Salinas Valley and the Monterey Appellation, it was created over eons by the flow of the Arroyo Seco as it spills down from the Santa Lucia Mountains. This funnel-shaped region appears as the edge of steep slopes where the river has a cut a deep ravine, forming an imposing riverbank. On the southern edge of this ravine, Riesling flourishes in the deep rocky soils.

Producer
In 1883, C. H. Wente, a first-generation immigrant from Germany, purchased 47 acres in the Livermore Valley . Recognizing that the warm days, cool nights and gravelly soils of the Livermore Valley were ideal for growing grapes, he planted vines and founded Wente Vineyards. 130 years later, Wente Family Estates continue to be family owned and operated by the fourth and fifth generation Wente’s, Eric, Philip, Carolyn, Christine and Karl.
