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!

And the 2023 release has proven that beyond doubt – taking out TWO Trophies at the 2023 NZ International Wine Show for both Champion Riesling and Champion Commercial White Wine! The judges said “A vivacious Riesling with notes of lime, sweet mandarin with a crisp, refreshing off-dry finish.” Stunner!

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.
