In the US, Riesling is a grape that is finally coming into it’s own. And by all accounts the rest of the
world is discovering just how fantastic Riesling can be. As one wine lover to another, we suggest you make that same discovery.

Schloss Johannisberg is known as the legendary first Riesling Estate….and Christian Witte is in charge of that historical estate.

We spoke with Christian over the phone while he was visiting the US. This came after sampling some of the Schloss Johannisberg Rieslings. The fact is, there is a reason why their wine is called legendary.
