Maddalena Riesling, Monterey, 2014

Winemaker. Mother. Visionary. Estate reserve. Semi-sweet. In 1946, family matriarch Maddalena Riboli began her lifelong journey with San Antonio Winery. She founded one of the first tasting rooms in the state and a highly successful restaurant. Today, the third and fourth generations of the Riboli family honor her passion and dedication with each bottle of her namesake wine. Riesling thrives in the cool, windy climate of Monterey. With the influences of morning fog and sandy soils, our family's estate vineyards produce intense flavors of ripe pear and green apple with aromas of wildflowers and apricots. Enjoy with honey-baked ham and Peking duck. - The Riboli Family. Winemakers: Anthony Riboli & Arnaud Debons. Riboli 1917 selection. Alc. 11.0% by vol. Produced & bottled by Maddalena Vineyard, Los Angeles, CA.
