Well, 2019 is here, and everyone needs a New Year’s resolution or two, especially ones that are achievable. This year, my resolution is to drink more Riesling. Specifically, it is to drink at least one bottle of Riesling per month, each month in 2019.

Why Riesling? First, it truly makes some of the world’s finest wines, and high quality examples can be found at affordable prices. Second, it is a variety that Washington does extremely well. Third, it is a great food pairing wine. And fourth, I just don’t drink anywhere near as much of it as I should. That changes this year.

Want to join me in the 2019 Riesling Challenge? Here’s how. At the end of each month, I’ll post on my Washington Wine Report Facebook page about what Riesling I’ve had that month and encourage others to do the same. This way, we’ll all keep each other accountable. I hope you will join me.

Here’s to a Riesling-filled 2019!
