You are able to understand the wine of a region when you grasp the spirit and soul of that region. The spirit and soul of the Rheingau is that incredibly beautiful band of vineyards which spreads out before the eyes of the spectator like the waves of an ocean, transfixed in its movement. The Domänenweingut Schloss Schönborn is one of the oldest wine estates of Germany and owns a unique selection of vineyards, counting among the most historic private wine estates of Germany.
It was the Schönborns who were one of the first who bottled the wine since 1725 in mouth-blown bottles. The dukes of Schönborn were known to maintain only the highest standards in their wine production, reflecting the characters of the sites and showing incredible maturation potential. Ever since, the most noble of all white wines, Riesling, has been cultivated. Today, almost 95% of the area under cultivation is Riesling.
