Schloss Johannisberg has its vineyards in the beautiful Rheingau. In general, the wines from the Rheingau are even more refined and with character and firmer in taste than the wines from Rheinhessen and Rheinpfalz. One of the most beautiful wineries in the Rheingau is without a doubt Schloss Johannisberg. Schloss Johannisberg in the Rheingau is undoubtedly Germany's most prestigious winery and world renowned for its Rieslings. It is the oldest Riesling winery in the world. It has been made since 817 and 100% Riesling has been produced since 1720. The winery is centrally located in the area and has a rich history. Originally it was a monastery that was later used as a castle. It was even once owned by our royal family. The wines are the most elegant in the Rheingau area and gain balance and suppleness as they age. Since 1748, a few bottles have been kept in the beautiful wine cellar, so that a unique collection has now been built up. Once every 25 years, the wines are inspected and fitted with new corks. And, it is assured, even the oldest white wines are still very drinkable!

The Schloss Johannisberger Gelblack is fermented in 1,200 liter barrels from our own oak trees. This Riesling is very concentrated but very clear with a slightly smoky bouquet of yellow fruit. It is a very aromatic, fresh and elegant Riesling with great purity. In the glass, this riesling has a golden yellow color with a young, fruity nose with peaches, apricots and pineapple. The wine is certainly already drinking nicely, but will refine even further over the years and is certainly perfect to drink until 2028.
