Das Weingut Baron Knyphausen gilt als Riesling Pionier und bewirtschaftet 12 Hektar in der Anbauregion Rheingau.
It seemed to be one of the most rainy years ever. The soil was not able to dry out to let us work properly in the vineyards for some weeks. After the rainy summertime the region had a very hot Indian summer. In September we had day temperatures above 86°F (30°C) with the risk of sunburn of the grapes. But this weather improved the quality significantly. Picking-season started at the 4th of October and finished at the 18th of October withl a very high quality of the grapes but low quantity compared to regular years.
Soil: deep-rooted loess and gravel, in some parts loess-loam and clay with sporadic lime inclusions.
