Special Report

Riesling is stirring in USA restaurants. After years of decline, it is appearing on more wine lists and by-the-glass programs than in any time in the past 15 years. In this report, we suggest why and discuss aspects of the varietal that servers should be informed about, including a look at the Rieslings of Germany.

Operation Profile

This San Francisco restaurant is one of the top wine destinations in the city. Interestingly, during the past year wine sales per guest have actually increased by 25%, and wine sales have jumped from 40% to 45% of total sales--all this against the backdrop of the slowing economy and the aftermath of 9/11. Here, we detail how and why this wine program continues to thrive.

Wine Reviews

We present 39 of the top 2001 German Rieslings, selected from among more than 150 tasted. Also, outstanding 2000 vintage Chardonnays from California; some of the best roses from California yet released; top value USA Pinot Noirs; a remarkable 2002 Riesling from Australia; four great Merlot values from Chile; and 14 wonderful wines from South Africa (from Chenin Blanc to Shiraz).
