From New York’s Finger Lakes, the 2017 Keuka Spring Riesling cost $13, had 11% alcohol, and scored 15 fine points on the Dionysian scale of a possible 20.

The Wiiltberger Family has been making wines there since 1985.

This semi-dry Riesling has  a floral nose with subtle hints of petrol. It is balanced and a charming pre-dinner or deck wine.


Fruity, balanced and very easy to sip. Drink chilled and pair with fruit and/or hard cheese.

If you plan to visit the Finger Lakes during summer, try t o do it during the week. Weekends are crazy.  In Vino Veritas.
