Schloss Johannisberg is the oldest Riesling-Estate of the world (100% Riesling since 1720). It is the home of the quality designations for German wine, especially for Spätlese (late harvest –invented in 1775) but also for Auslese (selected harvest – in 1787) and Eiswein (wine from frozen grapes – in 1858). The wines are the most elegant of the Rheingau wines and are long lived gaining in balance and smoothness with age. Which can be proofed by a large collection of Johannisberger Rieslings till the year 1748.
