Wine of the Weekend

Moselland Ars Vitis Riesling

Decorating is always one of the most fun parts of the holidays. Preparing your home, business, balcony or front yard for the season gets you into the spirit of the season and brightens the mood of passers-by. Taking decorating to the dinner table, centrepieces and other accents help elevate the dining experience, but do you decorate your wine bottles? Moselland has taken care of this for us, and this year’s release of Moselland Ars Vitis Riesling has a lovely winter scene to match your holiday table. The wine is delicious too!

Tasting Notes: 100% Riesling, Moselland Ars Vitis shows lots of apple, peach, and citrus fruit, with touches of sweetness and balancing acidity. Juicy and refreshing, and sporting a winter scene through the bottle, it’s the perfect match for the holidays!

Enjoy With: Roast ham or turkey, smoked salmon appetizers, Thai curries or as a delicious sip on its own.

Style: A light-bodied, fruity white wine.

Terroir/Region: Grown in the worn slate soils of the Mosel Valley of Germany, Ars Vitis captures some of the most famed grapes in the country, and some of the hardest to farm. Many vineyards are planted on steep to what-the-heck-are-you-thinking kind of steep slopes. Rain hitting these vines mostly runs downhill, giving the vines only what they need to ripen their impeccable fruit.

Producer: Moselland began in 1968 when local grape growers banded together to make their wine. Because of this, Moselland is able to source grapes from all over the top production regions of Germany in order to deliver great quality Riesling at an amazing price. The farmers are also the owners, so each farmer pays close attention to the harvest in order to draw out the finest flavour from the grapes.

Availability: Moselland Ars Vitis Riesling is available in the holiday gifting section of your local LCBO. It’s easy to spot – the only bottle allowing you to see beautiful art through the lens of wine! They’re only around until the holidays and make a great gift for Riesling lovers and any holiday décor buff.
