With just under 3,000 hectares of vineyards, the Rheingau is one of the smallest wine-growing areas in Germany. Some of the country's highest quality Rieslings come from the southern slopes, which are sheltered by the Taunus. After one Due to the warm winter, we feared that the trend of recent years would continue and occur again with early flowering. But fortunately a cold spring slowed down the development of nature. Due to the cool temperatures in July and August, we only started harvesting in mid-September. The grapes were extremely varied in quality and quantity... just like all year round.

The Pfaffenwies site is characterized by shallow, stony Hunsrück schist and Taunus quartzite soils and the deep loess on the lower slopes. Due to the southwestern location, the vines are slightly longer and therefore cooler. In the afternoon the sunlight on the steep slopes is significant.

The 40 hectare winery was brought to the top of the Rheingau wineries by Bernhard Breuer. Today it is run by his daughter Theresa Breuer and long-time operations manager Hermann Schmoranz, supported by cellar master Markus Lundén. Warm notes of almond and chamomile in the nose. Yellow-fruity and slightly floral on the palate. Beautifully integrated acid and compact in the extract. Despite its lightness, it has tension and tension, with a soft bitterness and robust finish.
