Riesling originated in the Rhine region of Germany, and is one of the countries most important varieties. Grown in other parts of Europe, North American and Australia & New Zealand, the grape is "terroir-expressive", meaning the characteristics of the wine influenced by where its grown. This means Rieslings can vary greatly in taste based on where they are from.
