All of our vineyards sites have been classified as VDP.Grosse Lage by the Verein Deutscher Prädikatsweingüter, the VDP – and thus figure among the finest sites in Germany. The overwhelming majority of our ideally exposed parcels lie on steep slopes, quite often with a gradient of more than 50%. The Nahe is famous for the diversity of its soils – in fact, a kaleidoscopic synopsis of German viticulture. No other growing region in Germany is more detailed and diverse in terms of its geology. And its beneficial climate provides us quite regularly with fully ripened and exquisitely aromatic grapes.
Ideal conditions for growing Riesling!
The ‘king of the white grapes’ is – like precious few varieties – an extremely expressive ambassador for the soil in which it grows, and for its heritage. Riesling from the best sites, the environmental circumstances, our cellarmaster’s experience and uncompromising quest for quality – as well as the passion of the entire team for Riesling – play together like a virtuoso ensemble in chamber music, and have made Gut Hermannsberg – the former Royal Prussian Wineproducing Domain – one of the best Riesling estates in Germany.
