• ASWASWA winner cool ridge Riesling2017 Cool White by Cool Ridge Vineyard, MD

    Gerhard Glocker’s 15 acre vineyard lies on a steep, south-facing slope that terraces down to Cool Hollow and Antietam Creek in the Cumberland Valley.

    The fertile, well-drained limestone soils yield nine different vinifera varietals. This winner is composed of equal amounts of pinot gris, viognier, riesling, and traminette, vinified dry for fresh fruit flavor and hints of white flower.
