Riesling Greenwood Ridge Vineyards, 2014

Produced by Bee Hunter Wine

From organically grown grapes in the famous Greenwood Ridge Vineyard high atop the Mendocino Ridge. This vintage is still poppin' fresh with zingy acidity but has the viscosity and touch -- really just a touch -- of sweetness to handle any kind of food.

Organic Farming

As is the nature of Mendocino farming, organic methods to ensure a sustainable place for future generations, was on Alan Green's mind when he planted these gorgeous vines. No harmful chemicals or pesticides are used.

High Altitude Vineyard

The vineyards here lie at least 1000 feet above the fogline where the Anderson Valley meets the Mendocino Ridge AVA. Nicknamed "Islands in the Sky" because when you stand atop of them in the morning, you can look down and see nothing but fog. It's like a scene from Avatar!

Loved by 3 Tastemakers
Tristan | Que Sera, Syrah Tastemaker

"This was the first wine I've ever smelled "petrol (gasoline)" on the nose. As nasty as that may sound, it's quite beautiful in a Riesling. I picked up citrus and honey aromas as well. I loved the wine so much I brought a bottle home. "

Hailey Bohlman Tastemaker

"Besides gasoline, this Riesling boasts aromas of lemon peel, apricot, green apple, and smoke. Flavor wise, it's light bodied with medium to high acidity."
