    Theo, Alex and Marcel are the brothers at Giesen. They’ve got good wine in their blood. And good food. And beer too actually. That’s because their granddad August (aw-goost) was a sommelier and their great granddad Leonard Kaiser was a brewer!

    Originally from Germany the Giesen brothers ended up in Marlborough in the early 80s while on their round-the-world travels. They fell in love with the place and decided to lay down roots. They purchased some land and planted a vineyard just outside of Christchurch. A few years later released their first ever wine – the 1984 Giesen Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc! Three decades on they’re one of Marlborough’s kingpin producers.

    This is New Zealand’s number one selling Riesling and has been for many years – for bloody good reason too! Made with Marlborough and Waipara fruit in a medium sweet style, it’s also lower in alcohol at just 10%, it’s seriously hard to not enjoy!

    If you’re looking for a master chef moment and pairing NZ’s No.1 selling Riesling with the right kai try a spicy Thai chicken salad with vermicelli, fresh mint and coriander.
