Now that summer is upon is, Terroir Wine Bar's annual Summer of Riesling program back — and bigger than ever.

The brain child of Terroir's Wine Director and Co-Owner Paul Grieco has grown over the last few years and this year Grieco — long a supporter of New York wines — has signed more than 160 restaurants and wine bars across the country on to take part. Each has agreed to pour three rieslings by the glass through September 24. There are many restaurants in New York City participating, but a couple wine country restaurants are participating as well. In the Finger Lakes, Red Newt Cellars Winery & Bistro is joining the funand here on the North Fork Luce & Hawkins will be taking part, pouring Long Island, Finger Lakes and German wines.

Loving riesling is easy in New York because there are quality rieslings being made in every major region. Get out there this summer and taste as many as you can — and let us know what you find.
