We are a newly formed world wide group of Riesling producers working togehter to promote Riesling. Our website is not up yet, but will be drinkriesling.com. One of the things we are working on is an international taste scale that we can all use on our labels that lets the customer know what sweetnes level the wine is at. There will be four levels, Dry - Medium Dry - Medium Sweet - Sweet. We are still working out the cut off points between the four levels and they are based on a residual sugar to acid ratio. Hopefully, in the future when you are looking for a dry Riesling or a sweet Riesling the standardized scale will get you to the right wine for the occasion you are purchasing it for. This scale is being spaerheaded by Dan Berger. He has a weekly wine news letter that is my favorite of all the news letters. It is called Dan Berger's Vintage Experiences.



I'm still reading the rest of the pages in this thread...

Thanks for the heads up, I will definitely be watching for the website to go live, and for the labeling on the bottles. I lived in Germany many years ago, and that is where my slippery slope of wine-loving started. I love very dry whites, and enjoy Rieslings, too, and prefer a more traditional flavor. I am disappointed when I take a chance on a wine and find it tastes like pure honey, without any nuances. I would really appreciate having an idea ahead of time of what the sweetness level is.

A fever.

So, using the typical wine.woot obscure clue path -

'fever' = Saturday Night Fever = John Travolta

Googling "John Travolta" + wine gives a link to this quote in the top three hits -


In his work habits, Travolta is strict and disciplined. He drinks fine wine, but does so sparingly, only a few times a month.



(Clayfu?)

The article itself is about his love of cigars

So the offering is clearly going to be a Woot Launch of a line of Travolta cigars!

So, um, do I win?

No way I could pass on these, the husband and I are both cellar club members at V. Sattui and go at least 3 times a year and buy a case or two to tide us over until the next trip. We also have friends in the UK that beg us to bring some over everytime we visit (any excuse for a visit is a good thing!). Personally, I am more a fan of their cabs and the luscious Ramazzotti zin (please oh please offer this one Woot!). For those of you into port, theirs is not to be missed (or the vin santo). In the past, I bought the off-dry reisling for my step mother who prefers the sweeter wines and was pleasantly surprised by it myself. In for one....

It might be because my brain is fried from working, but suddenly, Seymour, it's as plain as day - the next offer is a Venus Fly-Trap plant. I promise to name mine Audrey, too.

Sake is not "rice wine." Sake is sake, made primarily of fermented rice grain, and has more in common with beer than with wine. Sake makers even call themselves "brewers" (when they say it in English anyway).

Report from Vandolay industries:
Well I awake at 7 and waited patiently at the front door for my wine today, to the point of opening it a crack and stationing my furry doorbells (a lab x and a beagle) so that Fed Ex would not get away again. It came 1/2 hour before I was due to leave for work, so it had a quick 30 minutes in the fridge before I opened it (hey, if you can't go to work with wine on your breath...). Now, after work, I'm finishing my second glass, trying to rush to get my lab rat report up before it's too late. I got the dry variey. In a word: a wonderful wine. I caught the aroma of pears and as it warms up, a little peach. Tha aroma carries through to the taste, a rich, soft pear. Extremely smooth but not without a tart finish...almost a "tingle" on my tongue. I'm having it with a mildy spicy crawfish etoufee, which it pairs well with, although I think that anything spicier might overwhelm it. I would agree that it is a good wine to drink on it's own, to get the full benefit. Really, really enjoyable. i know it's late but if you are sitting on the fence I'd go for it. My experience with reislings has been with a sweeter kind in general as that's the only kind my in laws will drink, so I'm not sure that I will share this with them after all. Anyway-thank you woot for the lab rat opportunity and I'm sorry it took an extra day to report!

After hitting the orange button 3 times but not following through I finally just did. GF likes Riesling, isnt that good enough reason? These last 3 weeks have been rough on my pocket book even though none of them are arriving. Time to get on the overtime list again at work.
