The story of Coal Valley Vineyard began with a passion for wine. After years of travelling and working around the world, Todd Goebel and Gill Christian were ready to get their hands dirty and realize a long held dream. Fifteen years later, Todd and Gill are proud of what they produce and love what they do. The fastidious vineyard technique of cane pruning means pulling out everything that was growing the previous year, except for one cane per vine, tying it down to the wire for the next season's canes to grow out. Drier than most Riesling styles, fashioned to articulate the character of growing season, capturing all those crisp acids in the grapes which provide great structure in the finished wine.
