Rheingau – Beautiful Riesling and Spätburgunder

Rheingau covers only 3% of Germanys total land mass with less than 3.000 ha under vine. Wineries are dotted across a rather short stretch of land following along the Rhine river, up and down from where the Rhine meets the Main river. Coming from the west and moving eastwards throughout the region, Rheingau evolves from a dimpled landscape to steeper hills.

With old monasteries and castles as well as beautiful vineyards in between, Rheingau is very popular among tourists. The past and the present come together in a lovely way and you can clearly see that when making stops at the viewpoints Niederwald Monument, Schloss Johannisberg, the Hallgartener Zange via Oestrich-Winkel and Bubenhäuser Höhe.

Rheingau, with its regional capital Wiesbaden less than 50 km southwest of Frankfurt, is renowned for its Rieslings, which make up close to 80% of total wine production. Great Rheingau Rieslings are acclaimed for showing both elegance, refinement, bright acidity, opulent fruit, richness and even hints of spice.

Another hallmark from Rheingau is the Spätburgunders, making up a little over 10% of wine production. Similarly, to the Rieslings – which are a bit heavier than their Riesling counterparts from Mosel – the Spätburgunders are also generally more robust showing more dark fruit flavors than those from neighboring German wine regions.
