Blogger Recipient: Alex Down

 Alex Down is The Riesling Revolutionary!  With a passion for Riesling, the thrilling balance of acidity, complex citrusy flavors and ability to respond to vineyard character really makes Alex’s passion come alive.

He has a particular passion for German Riesling, where he first stumbled upon this magical grape variety.

Alex strives to help wine lovers in the UK understand Riesling, spreading the Riesling gospel, one post at a time.

This will be Alex’s first Wine Bloggers Conference, and as he spends a lot of time evangelizing wine in the UK, he is looking forward to sharing notes about his favorite wines with wine lovers from around the world.  He is also looking forward to trying some delicious Riesling from the US, and expanding his knowledge to include California Riesling from our host region of Santa Barbara County.

We look forward to seeing you in Buellton Alex!

Please stop by and say hello to him at @AlexDownWine on twitter!
