‘Why Not Wednesday’
Robert Weil is widely acknowledged as one of the most consistent producers of great Rheingau Riesling. Their most famous wines, from Kiedrich’s Gräfenberg vineyard, are some of Germany’s most expensive wines, all with distinctive, unforgettable pale blue labels. One of the biggest misconceptions in Riesling is that they are sweet. NOT the case with these, these have focus and show the other side of Riesling.
Founded in 1875, Weingut Robert Weil is considered to be one of the Rheingau’s younger wine estates. It is located in the heart of Kiedrich, a village first documented in the year 950. Kiedrich Turmberg and Kiedrich Gräfenberg, the estate’s top vineyards, are among the finest sites in the Rheingau.
The estate cultivates 90 hectares (222 acres) of vineyards, of which 100 percent are planted with Riesling. Today, Wilhelm Weil, the great-grandson of the estate’s founder, carries on the tradition of uncompromising, quality-oriented vineyard and cellar practices – a tradition that has been the hallmark of the winery for four generations.
Grapes are harvested by hand, with an extremely critical selection that involves up to 17 rounds through the vineyards. The goal of this meticulous attention is to reap the finest fruit possible for wines in every Prädikat level.
