Dr. L Riesling – The Original

The No. 1 super-premium Riesling in America embodies the delicate and racy style of the Mosel’s slate-soil vineyards. Best of all, it delivers this uniquely delicious and invigorating taste at a very affordable price for everyday enjoyment.

A bright, refreshing, fruit-driven wine, with a juicy mid-palate and a crisp, drying finish, the fully ripe 2019 vintage offers bright aromatics and a pronounced acidity that give brilliant structural precision. At 8.5%, Dr. L is lower in alcohol, making it a perfect quaff for the wellness-minded and/or occasions when moderation is desired.

Naturally produced  *  Lower in alcohol, calories and carbs  *  No additives, pesticides, herbicides or GMOs  *  Gluten free and nut free.

89 points – Wine Enthusiast Best Buy  “This is a joyously juicy, fruity off-dry Riesling packed with sun-drenched yellow cherry and peach flavors. Fresh with lemon-lime acidity and featherlight on its feet, it’s an easy drinking, revitalizing sip that rewards youthful drinking.”


Dr. L Riesling Dry – The Original’s Dryer Cousin

A harmonious, beautifully balanced Riesling, made in a dry style that is extraordinarily versatile with food. This crisp, refreshing Riesling is the dry counterpart to the lightly sweet Dr. L Riesling, capturing the elegant and racy characteristics of steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards at a very reasonable price.

With vibrant aromatics and a pronounced acidity that gives brilliant structural precision, Dr. L Dry is a delicious pairing for all your grilled foods, cheeses, and vegetarian fare. Enjoy it with fish, seafood, beef, sausages, pasta, and vegetarian dishes. (Pro tip: It’s killer with comfort foods like mac & cheese!) 

90 points – Wine Enthusiast Best Buy  “Pristine, fragrant white peach and chalky mineral tones collide in this dry, fresh-fruited Riesling. Steely on the finish, it’s a remarkable value for a sophisticated yet easy-drinking wine that’s likely to please many.”

86 points – Wine & Spirits Best Buy | Year’s Best Mosel RieslingsZesty acidity keeps this lean and light, with just enough peachy fruit to whet the palate.”


Dr. L Sparkling – The Original’s Bubbly Sister

What better way to celebrate the end of social distancing? This delightful stuff is 100% pure Riesling, made using the Charmat method, which produces bright, clean sparkling wines in a more affordable way, making it possible to offer this charmer at a very nice price.

Great for weddings, parties, birthdays and gatherings of all sorts that call for a touch of sparkle. And if cocktails are more your thing? Dr. L Sparkling is a terrific mixer with shrubs, juices and drinking vinegars for warm-weather libations that dance on the tongue.

88 points – KensWineGuide.com  “From one of the biggest names in wine comes a sparkling wine from one of the oldest wine countries in the world. Germany is known for its Riesling, so it is of no shock that a bottle of sparkling wine has been made from it. The wine boasts both developed flavors of honey and yellow delicious apples, along with slightly less developed flavors of lemon zest and ginger. The light straw color of this wine hints at a softer profile but the wine does deliver a bit more. Paired with seared scallops this wine would shine.”
