Wine growing area: The Rheingau covers approximately 3.000 hectares of vineyards and is one of the smallest wine growing regions in Germany. The southerly exposed vineyard sites protected by the Taunus mountain range are a reliable source of one of the finest Riesling wines of the country.
Grape variety: In terms of elegance and finesse Riesling is the country’s premier grape. The vineyards along the Rhine provide for ideal growing conditions. With its distinctive aromatic profile, delicate structure and tangy acidity Riesling produces not only the finest German wines, it earns world-wide recognition as well.
Soils: Weathered slate with loess and loam give ideal ripening conditions for Riesling which thrives on the high mineral content of the soil. It is also heat absorbing which is important in its ripening process. The grapes for this wine are sourced from the deep Phyllite, clay and quartz slate soils.
Wine estate: Implementing a strict quality philosophy Bernhard Breuer turned the family-owned wine estate with its 40 hectares into a leading estate in the Rheingau. Today it is managed by his daughter Theresa Breuer and production manager of many years, Hermann Schmoranz, with the assistance of cellar master Markus Lundén.
