When someone asks me what I think is the best “All Purpose Wine” I laugh and give them my best answer “Riesling”. It may sound too simple but when you consider the range of styles, producers, regions, and choices from very dry through sweet culminating in excellent dessert wine, the answer is actually a very complex one. This wine is extremely food friendly and you can easily find a Riesling that will pair well with any cuisine. You probably heard the saying “There’s an app for that” and when it comes to food pairings it can be said “There’s a Riesling for that”. Riesling is produced globally by a host of very fine wineries but the frontrunners in quality have always been from the French Alsace Region, Germany and Austria. Australia also markets some nice Riesling but anyone that has followed this blog knows I favor the Finger Lakes Region of New York and their world-class Riesling. I have listed below a few favorites that should give you a good start on your search but there are plenty of others waiting to be discovered .
