The Spokesman Review: Great Northwest Wine: Greg Koenig shines at this year’s Idaho Wine Competition

For years, Greg Koenig has been viewed as perhaps Idaho’s most gifted winemaker. He solidified that opinion by crafting the best in show at last month’s Idaho Wine Competition, taking home the top prize with a stunning dessert wine.

Koenig, who sold his Caldwell winery this year, crafted a delicious riesling ice wine from the 2018 vintage that wowed this year’s panel of national judges. This isn’t the first best of show for Koenig, who won in 2016 for a dessert wine made with riesling.
