Located in the winemaking village of Nierstein, Germany (Rheinhessen), Weingut Georg Albrecht Schneider has been making terroir-driven wines for seven generations. The property maintains 37 acres of premium vineyards situated along the Rhine River on which it cultivates over ten grape varieties (52% Riesling; 17% Müller-Thurgau; 8% Silvaner; 8% Pinot Gris/Blanc; 8% red wine varieties; 7% other). It produces mostly varietal wines in all styles and colors, including white, red, rosé, sparkling and dessert wines. Weingut Georg Albrecht Schneider is also a member of the Rote Hang society, a group of Riesling producers who make wines from Nierstein's acclaimed "Red Slope" soils.
