In 2006, we named this Riesling for the most famous wine village on the Rhine Terrace, in this district where we have a majority of our vineyards.
We believe that Nierstein has a sense of place so distinctive that it expresses itself unmistakably in the wines — a phenomenon typically called 'terroir’ nowadays. And our success has proven us right.
The VDP classifies the vineyards of its members, with the finest divided into “Grosse Lagen” and “Erste Lagen” sites. Starting with the 2018 vintage, the Nierstein Riesling will bear the VDP.AUS ERSTEN LAGEN classification, as only grapes from classified Erste and Große Lagen sites can be used in this wine.
