The Olsen family has been selling its award-winning grapes since closing their winery in Prosser, Wash., which is where Jeremy Santo, the winemaker for this Leavenworth brand, grew up. His dry Riesling for this Milbrandt-owned brand is invigorating and minerally as nectarine, white peach and lime peel lead to a racy finish. It won best of class at the 2017 Bellingham Northwest Wine Festival on its way to earning a Platinum in the 18th annual "best of the best" judging by Wine Press Northwest magazine.
