Weingut Werner DomdechantAll products from this vendor
Domdechant Werner, on the slopes of Hohenheim, produces a richer version of the region's characteristic Rieslings. The winery owners own plots in three different vineyards, each capable of producing grapes for Erstes Gewächs wines (Grosses Gewächs in other regions of Germany) - the equivalent of the Burgundian Grand Cru. The Kirchenstück site grows grapes for more elegant wines, while richer wines are made from grapes from the Hölle and Domdechaney vineyards. Acquired in 1780, the Hohenheim winery has been passed down from generation to generation of the Werner family. Today the winery is owned by Dr. Franz Werner Michel, and his daughter Katharina Maurits runs the family business, and together they represent the 7th and 8th generations of the Werner family. Katarina recently bought the 13th century Cathedral de Mainz. The acquisition expanded the winery and increased production to meet the growing demand. The aim of the winery is to continuously improve the quality of the wines produced.
RieslingAll products from this varietal
Riesling is a light-skinned, aromatic white grape and its wine range is very wide. Riesling can produce very fresh and crispy whites, with vivid acidity and aromatic notes of green apple and lime, or sweet late harvest wines with flavors of overripe peach and apricot, complimented with hits of honey and toffe.
The Rheingau is a very popular tourist region with old monasteries and castles that fit perfectly into the wine landscape. The Riesling trail passes through over 120 km of picturesque wine villages. Along the way, restaurants and wine bars invite you to stop for a drop of Rheingau wine, while cultural and historical attractions will inspire you along the way. This beautiful plot is planted with 3185 hectares of vines. This is the famous Riesling, which grows on 2500 hectares of vineyards, as well as the dark Pinot Noir. Interestingly, the climate here is temperate, with mild winters and warm summers, as the vineyards are protected from the cold winds by the wooded Taunus mountains and take advantage of the heat reflected from the surface of the Rhine.
