Rheingau Wine

The Rheingau is a major German wine-producing region that is located along the Rhine and Main rivers. It is considered by some to be the home of the Riesling grape. Indeed, that grape is often referred to as “Johannisberg Riesling” in other countries, after the Rheingau village of the same name.

In 1983, several top Rheingau estates, seeing that the poor dry wines that were commonly sold at the time may threaten their own superior wines, created the Association of Charta. Any wine bearing the organization’s double-arch symbol is subject to extremely high standards and must be dry.

Pinot Noir was brought to the Rheingau at about the same time that Clos Vougeot was being founded in Burgundy -- during the Middle Ages. To this day, many examples from the Rheingau are world class.

  • Robert Weil Riesling Tradition 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Clear peach and melon aromas on the nose. Juicy acidity and a fresh lemon zest bite greets the palate with green apple and pear flavors and a tart, brisk finish. There's a vein of floral sweet fruit through the core here that balances the acidity quite well. Very pleasant. Read More

    Warm and fresh, floral and fruity aromas of apricot, green apple, rose petals and that classic Riesling petrol on the nose.
