The Estate Baron Knyphausen is known as a Riesling pioneer and cultivates 12 hectares in the Rheingau region
The year 2017 showed again that the climatic challenges for the Rheingau winegrowers are not easing up. Volume is around 20% lower than the already smaller year 2016. We had a very warm and dry springtime, which brought a very fast discharge of the vines. During the night of August 1st, we had a massive hailstorm with a lot of rain and wind which did damage in some of our vineyards. The Knyphausen estate had the earliest harvest since we can think of and started on September 19th with the final day on 13th of October
deep-rooted loess and gravel soil, in some parts loess-loam and clay with sporadic lime inclusions.
