Each Costco store carries about 150 different wines, just three to five of which are Rieslings. Annette Alvarez-Peters, head wine buyer for the chain, said the selections cater to different wine tastes such as sweet and off-dry.

, which was held in Seattle and sponsored by Chateau Ste. Michelle and Dr. Loosen estate.
