One of Riga’s most beloved dining destinations Riviera boasts a true world-class wine list featuring an ambitious array of wines not just from classic regions like Champagne, Burgundy, Piedmont, Mosel, Nahe, but also New World – from Victoria to Hawke’s Bay and Napa Valley. Look out for under-priced gems in every category and certainly talk to Ivars Kalniņš – one of the most experienced Latvian wine professionals and the creator of this wonderful list. Also, make sure you book in advance – Riviera’s unbeatable food and wine offer is one of the most attractive in the City.
Currently: Riviera is open daily and during the Covid crisis their food and wines are available to order online for delivery, so we’d certainly urge you to use this opportunity.
Our choice: Why don’t we compare two German darlings – Nahe’s 2005 Donnhoff Norheimer Kirschheck Riesling Spätlese (€88) and Mosel’s 2004 St. Urbans-Hof Piesporter Goldtrōpfchen Riesling Spätlese (€87)!
