New York Times Singles Out Rivendell

An Aperitif From Upstate
Published: August 19, 2007, New York Times

Rivendell’s 2006 SoHo Cellars Johannisberg riesling was voted the state’s best semidry riesling at the 22nd New York Wine and Food Classic this month.

Rivendell, a Hudson Valley winery, charges $16.99 for this white at Vintage New York, its Manhattan outlets, at 482 Broome Street (Wooster Street) and 2492 Broadway (93rd Street).

The wine, an aperitif made from Finger Lakes grapes, has a grapefruit tang. Chill it moderately.
