The oldest cultured grape variety in Germany and the most precious white wine variety in the world: the queen of white wine is native to the Rheingau region. It “resides” and flourishes here on 80 % of the viniculture area. Riesling has small berried grapes with relatively robust skin. In the Rheingau region, it ripens until October and is harvested late. Therefore, the aromas have a long time to develop while the grapes extract high levels of minerals from the soil in Johannisberg. The Rheingau Riesling is popular due to its incomparable diversity of aromas. If one is able to resist drinking it too early, it is storable for more than 100 years.
* For history buffs: Riesling viticulture was first recorded in Rheingau in 1435.
