Robert Weil is the star producer in Rheingau. Founded in 1875, the estate has deep roots in German Riesling tradition. The estate today is run by Wilhelm Weil, the great-grandson of the estate’s founder. Across their 90ha they grow only Riesling, which grows on angles of up to 60 degrees on the steep banks of the Rhine River. And all picking is done by hand!
Robert Weil Rieslings express the mineral-rich soils of the vineyards. They are elegant and complex, with pronounced fruit and nuanced flavors and aromas. They embody a perfect interplay of fine yet firm acidity with natural sweetness and extract.
