Birth of American Grüner Veltliner
Since 2005, Reustle-Prayer Rock Vineyards has earned hundreds of Gold, Double Gold, and Platinum Awards for our Grüner Veltliner. These accolades include titles such as 'Best White Wine in the Pacific NW' and 'Best White Wine of North America' at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
"Reustle Prayer Rock is the first winery to plant and release Gruner Veltliner in the United States...While other growers and winemakers have followed its lead, Reustle Prayer Rock still pretty much owns the field when it comes to takes that are dry, lean, pleasently if delicately fruity, and accented with several dashes of white pepper, for which the variety is celebrated." - Mike Dunne, San Francisco Chronicle Wine Judge & Writer
