Rheinhessen is one of the most beautiful parts of Germany, nicknamed the “the land of thousand hills”. Wine has been produced for a long time here, supposedly brought in by the Romans. Jason marks the 5th generation of winemakers at Bergkloster (“abbey on the hill” in German) which has been in their family for over 120 years. His father had taken th eestate organic in 2006, with Jason taking the winemaking natural and additive-free in 2018.

The grapes for this wine come from the renowned village of Westofen. Hence this Riesling can be categorised in the German equivalent of the French “village” level. The grapes were hand harvested early to maintain the crisp acidity levels. Most of the grapes were pressed directly, to retain varietal purity, although one part has been fermented on skins to enhance the phenolic structure of the whole wine. They mature in large oval oak for 9 month on the lees, to enhance the longevity off the wines.
