The Ress family’s success is intrinsically tied to the town of Hattenheim. For generations a family of butchers, in the late 1800’s Balthasar Ress founded the “Gasthof Ress” inn on the towns main street. As a profitable hotelier-restaurateur, Balthasar produced house wines for his guests enjoyment. By the mid 1900’s the family would purchase additional land and properties, becoming a full fledged wine estate. By 1947 the estate owned 3 hectares of vineyards of vines. Today the estate has grown to 46 hectares of vineyards, and is managed by Christian Ress, a fifth generation winemaker.
Crisp and off-dry, this Riesling has golden notes of citrus fruits, green apple, honey, and wet stone.
