The Queen of Silver Thread, our 100% estate-grown Riesling.

90 points–Wine Spectator

90 points–Vinous

Planted in 1982 on shallow, shale-heavy soils, Silver Thread’s Estate Vineyard produces Riesling of unparalleled interest. Intensively hand-managed by the Brock family, the vineyard sits on a slope at the edge of the east side of Seneca Lake. Low-yielding, 30-year-old vines deliver wine with racy acidity, ample minerality, lemon-lime zestiness, and hints of exotic jasmine.  Medium dry.  Seneca Lake appellation.

Limited production– 60 cases produced.

Sample this Riesling alongside its sisters–Riesling Doyle Fournier Vineyard and Riesling Gridley Bluff Point Vineyard–for the ultimate Finger Lakes Riesling experience.
