Welcome to Meiningers Best of Riesling
The international Best of Riesling competition has been on the market since 2000 - a true perennial favourite with "probably the largest Riesling sample in the world".
The competition looks back on a long history. It is firmly anchored in the wine industry and among the interested public as the Riesling World Championship.
Like no other grape variety, Riesling reflects the special character of the respective vintage, the terroir and the signature of its winery. Such a wine is not just a luxury food, it tells the story of a year - and just as every year is different, so is the Riesling. The diversity of the vineyards, the climatic conditions as well as the philosophies of the winegrowers are expressed in an overwhelming variety of Riesling wines. Anyone who thinks they know Riesling is mistaken: Riesling is definitely one of those grape varieties that never gets boring and can reliably surprise. Riesling delights with the enormous range of wines it is capable of producing.
