For more than 800 vintages, this ancient domaine has honed its expertise in crafting the finest Rheingau Riesling.
Schloss Vollrads is the oldest continually run winery in the world, with a noble history in the wine trade dating to the year 1211. Located along the storied banks of Germany’s Rhine River valley, the estate draws on 200 acres of vines, planted exclusively to Riesling. Its ancient vineyards rise from the river on south-facing hillsides whose pitches range from gentle to dizzyingly steep, with slopes of up to 70 percent. Due to their superb terroirs, more than a quarter of the domaine’s holdings claim a Grosses Gewächs (Grand Cru) designation. These outstanding vineyards, and the talents of distinguished winemaker Dr. Rowald Hepp, result in brilliant Rieslings of crystalline purity and complexity.
