Washington Post Recommends out Extra Brut Riesling

Jan 27, 2023 | Featured

Washington Post Food & Wine Columnist Dave McIntyre highlights our Extra Brut Riesling in “3 Exceptional sparkling wines to toast your love this Valentine’s Day.”

He writes of the wine, ““Hermann J. Wiemer was a Finger Lakes pioneer in riesling and sparkling wine. The winery, now owned by Fred Merwarth and Oskar Bynke, continues to excel in these and other areas. The 2017 Extra Brut sparkling wine is 100 percent riesling, soothing with a gentle fizz and flavors of apples, apricots and peaches. All that fruitiness is grounded in a soft but focused acidity leading to a long, satisfying finish. Superb. ”
