The Tanager Tangle

We are intrigued with ancestry at the moment, so I thought to have a closer look at the beautiful bird drawings on our labels. They were done quite a while ago, around 1841, and major upheaval has happened in the Natural World since; just think of Darwin’s evolution theory and our modern DNA sequencing. I promptly discovered that our lovely drawings also suffered an identity crisis and discovered one unfortunate fact.

the Riesling enigma

It is quite hard to know where to start when contemplating Riesling. Let us begin with the history of the wine, followed by some wine facts on potential ageing and finish trying to explain why we can start a dinner with a bone dry Riesling and finish the dinner enjoying a Noble Riesling dessert wine....And have you heard about Red Riesling?
