Leon Beyer represents everything that is great about Alsace wine. The family has a long history of cultivating wine in the region, dating back to the 16th century, and so it's fair to say they’ve perfected their techniques over the years. Their home in the stunning Alsace region of France falls at the feet of the beautiful Vosges mountain range and just to the East of the Rhine. Wine-makers here have long been able to bring together the best-kept secrets of French and German wine-making, producing truly singular wines.
The 2017 Leon Beyer Riesling is a classic example of a fine full-bodied Alsacien white. So, what are you waiting for? The distinct minerality of Leon Beyer’s Riesling makes it stand out among its peers. With its distinct aromas of green apple, pear, and lychee this fresh and versatile summer wine would be an excellent choice for those hot afternoons or late lunches. The Riesling is enjoyed best when chilled to perfection and uncorked with friends and family.
Together, savor that crisp and refreshing taste of fine white wine. Leon Beyer has a well-earned host of honorary titles from Académie des Gastronomes, as well as the Académie intérnationale du Vin.
