Roku hails from Monterey County, a perfect place to grow the Riesling grape. Riesling requires a cool climate, which allows for slow ripening and maintaining the grape’s fruit character and natural acidity. The early morning fog and afternoon winds of Monterey County offer ideal cool conditions for growing top-notch Riesling.
Roku is a fresh, distinctive wine that offers delicate yet complex flavors. It is semi-sweet but retains a refreshing, crisp acidity, making it an excellent wine to drink as an apéritif or as a delicious accompaniment to Asian-inspired cuisine.
Our 2016 Roku was awarded a Gold Medal and 90 pts at the 2017 Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition.
