Riesling Poached Pear Sorbet, on the menu since the earliest days of Jeni’s, is a favorite of ice cream lovers and sorbet diehards alike. Anytime we’ve sent the flavor on sabbatical, we hear an uproar of complaints.
We understand. Riesling Poached Pear Sorbet—creamy, luscious, and boasting true pear flavor and granular texture—is an incredible dessert. It owes a lot of its popularity to the Ohio Riesling we use.
A few years ago at the North Market Food & Ohio Wine Festival, Jeni tasted a Riesling from Firelands, an international award-winning northern Ohio winery that dates to the late 1800s. She fell in love with the taste as well as the terroir. If there’s something local that we love and can use we always will. Shortly after Jeni’s first sip, we began using Firelands Riesling and haven’t looked back.
