Rieslings can come in all shapes and sizes. For this dish look for a dry, vibrant riesling with a good amount of acidity. The fresh lettuce, ginger and coriander will pop when matched with this wine. Whatever wine you choose, keep it light to match the brighter flavors in in the food!
Christopher Columbus introduced lettuce to the Americas during his second voyage to the New World in 1494. In the US, it's now the second most eaten veggie behind potatoes!
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!
