About the producer: Johannes and Sabine Eser have been the 10th generation of the Johannishof winery since 1999. The wide flavor-palette of Riesling wines is facilitated by the variable nature of the ground conditions and development of the wine to full maturity of flavor.
The VDP estate wines serve as an introduction to the quality hierarchy of the winery. The dry VDP “Erste Lage” Rieslings originate from the first class vineyards in Johannisberg and Rüdesheim. The selection is complemented by the semi-dry or “feinherb” Rieslings, wines with a subtle sweetness, and the famous Rheingau Charta wines.
The vineyards of the Johannishof winery comprise of 20 hectares in the districts of Winkel, Johannisberg, Geisenheim and Rüdesheim. Vineyards are planted with 99% Riesling grapes and 1% “white Burgundy” and are cultivated according to modern standards.
The wide flavor-palette of Riesling wines is facilitated by the variety of ground conditions available and development of the wines to full maturity of flavor. Value is placed on achieving a distinctive Riesling character. Gentle and individual treatment of the wine allows the aromas and flavors specific for each year to come into their own. The cool, humid hill-side cellar guarantees optimal maturation and storage conditions.
