12 Days of Austrian Wine: A Riesling Carol

wreath

Throughout the years, we have been fortunate enough to be surrounded with creative and entertaining wine lovers with talents that spam from blind tasting to writing songs about grapes.

Yesterday, we got to talking with fellow Riesling lover, Justine Christoph of both Riesling AC and Acker Merrall who shared this gem with us. Sung to the tune of O’ Christmas Tree, Riesling enthusiasts around the world can sing in harmony about this acidic gem.

O Riesling Vine, O Riesling vine,
How lovely are your grape bunches!
In terroir, wine will always grow
Through summer sun and winter snow.
O Riesling vine, O Riesling vine,
How lovely are your wines!

O Riesling Vine, O Riesling vine,
You are the grape most loved!
How often you give us delight
In brightly shining Riesling light!
O Riesling Vine, O Riesling vine,
You are the wine most loved!

O Riesling Vine, O Riesling vine,
Your brilliant acidity will teach me
That balanced sugar and fruit sublime
Lend strength and cellar through all time..
O Riesling Vine, O Riesling vine,
Your surreal beauty will teach me.

Once again, special thanks to Justin for providing us with the song!
