The Rheingau is a multifaceted region ? a unique cultural landscape that has evolved over centuries. This is where Riesling grows, under the benevolent skies of the western vine-clad foothills of the Taunus massif overlooking the Rhine. This wine-growing area straddling the river offers something for all the senses with its many enticing attractions ? a region that both soothes and stirs the soul with its gentle beauty. In the heart of the Rheingau, the Johannisberg hill majestically ascends from the riverbank ? a monument to German and European wine culture, as well as a symbol of man, culture and wine in harmonious interplay, epitomizing the region?s flair, charm and inimitable sense of the good life.
