R is for Riesling


I usually don't post about liquor because I have some friends that have been sober for a long time but I do have an occasional drink. I like wine and I like fru fru drinks like Pina Coladas. When I was younger I liked tequila and occasionally still have a Margarita but I like a old fashioned ones that are on the rocks (less calories) or are of the "Perfect" variety with Grand Marnier and Agave tequila. But at my grandson's baby shower last weekend I donated some gifts to be given away! One of them was the cutest set of blue Libbey wine glasses with a bttle of Blue Moon Riesling wine. It is made in the USA in Oregon and the winner of that gift was my grandson's best friend Nick's mom. She loved the wine! So I am thinking of tracking down another bottle so I can try it! I often buy what I like in a variety of brands. Once I was looking for a good bottle of red dinner wine and came across, quite by accident, Love Your Goat! It is made in upstate New York! It is wonderful wine with a nice Italian dinner.
So tonight for the letter "R" I am writing this post about Riesling wine. It is a sweeter and more dry and I enjoy sharing a glass with a friend occasionally.
The sweet white grape is flowery and perfumed and highly acidic Germany is the primary grower of these beautiful grapes. Then Alsace (France), Australia, New Zealand,  Austria, the U.S. and Canada. South Africa, China,  Austria, Czech Republic, Northern Italy,  Ukraine, Luxembourg. In the countries where it is cultivated  Riesling is commonly grown in the colder regions and locations.Now please stop by Jenny's and visit all the participates of this weekly fun meme.

I think this is a kind of wine I like, too. (If it is the one that comes in a blue bottle). My daughter knows and shops, so I get to enjoy it once in a blue moon.♥♫

Riesling is one of my favorites...not too dry, not too sweet.

A great idea to have a gift of blue wine glasses to go with the classic blue wine bottle.

Riesling is a German wine. It's funny for me to read : "Oregon Riesling" and then blue ??

I can't drink at all because of severe reaction to alcohol, but I like the blue bottle.
