Riesling grapes come from Germany, where they have been cultivated since the early 1400s. Other names for true Riesling are Johannisberg Riesling, White Riesling, and Rhine Riesling.

Rieslings are well known for a couple of reasons. The first is their cellar longevity. In 1961, a 420 year old bottle of Riesling was tasted and had not yet perished. Secondly, Riesling is a very versatile wine to have with food, because of its balance of sugar and acid and its relatively low acidity.
