The vintage 2017 at PJK is vital and has good grip. The vintage 1703 might have been the same. Who knows… But since then the winery Peter Jakob Kühn from Rheingau makes Riesling. Unbelievable! Always in the family, from one generation to the next.
Do you know the feeling of being really welcome? It is amazing. Do you know people that truly have a heart that can give you the feeling? There are only a few on this world. One of them is Theresa Breuer. She is “Da Boss” of famous and well-known winery Georg Breuer in the Rheingau.
You cannot tell the story of Riesling without mentioning a few places where the story gets magic. For us, these places are not just Restaurants or Hotels. They are cornerstones of the Riesling history – its past and its current hype. One of these places is the famous Hotel Kronenschlösschen at the beautiful river Rhine in Hattenheim/Germany.
If you want to know where the Riesling comes from there is no better place than Schloss Johannisberg in the middle of the Rheingau region. It is not only a beautiful place where you can have a fantastic view to the river Rhine, where you can sit outside when the sun is shining and where you can eat and drink the local wine. It is also some kind of the birthplace of todays Riesling.
It was a foggy day, when we went to Rheingau in late December. You couldn’t even see the river Rhine – although it was right in front of you. We decided to visit Peter Jakob Kuehn – right after he was awarded with five grapes from Gault Millau. On the same tour we went to see the vineyards of Leitz, Künstler and Spreitzer. They are all located around the same spot.
