Wet Your Whistle: Pure Fun with Pierce Riesling

Happy Friday from Marcus and Andy!

Want a bottle of deliciousness? We thought you would! Jess Pierce's first Riesling is pure fun and refreshment, weighing in at 11% alcohol and featuring an entirely intentional light spritz. White peach and a sliver of lime meet green apple acidity, held in check perfectly by the smidgen of residual sugar. Technically dry, it'll really wet your whistle.

From Van Horn Vineyard in the Columbia Gorge. Magnums available for those who really know how to party...

Jess is a Riesling -- and perhaps all-around wine -- ninja master. After successfully completing a Masters in Food Culture and Communications, Human Ecology and Sustainability from the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Piedmont, Italy, she ventured to Germany to intern with world-renowned Mosel Valley producer Dr. Loosen. She stayed in Germany to document the cultural landscape of the Mosel Valley and to work the 2013 harvest with another famous Riesling producer, Selbach-Oster.
 
She returned to Oregon, spending 3 years as the Director of Wine Education and Communications for Brooks Winery, a Riesling specialist (where she had worked the 2010 and 2011 harvests).
 
Jess is now a vital member of Team Walter Scott, where she has the role of Oregon Champion of Sales, Marketing and Education. She's also a Certified Sommelier by the Court of Master Sommeliers and received her WSET Level 3 award. Jess is super-involved in the Oregon wine scene and embodies the kind of energy, enthusiasm, knowledge, and dedication that makes our wine community special. Go Jess! 

We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for reading and for your support!

Marcus and Andy
