“Weingut Robert Weil is widely seen as the jewel of the Rheingau, historically Germany’s grandest wine region.” — Jancis Robinson

 

The hillside vineyards of the Rheingau are home to many of Germany’s most famous estates, the terroirs of many of its finest wines. Their south-facing, rocky slopes, their flush exposures to the sun and their troves of mineral riches make these vineyards and their estates the Côte d’Or of Riesling.

The crown jewel of these estates is Weingut Robert Weil, whose wines the world’s most authoritative wine critic, Jancis Robinson, heralds for their “impeccable quality and consistency.”

The estate has its origins in the second half of the 19th century, when Dr. Robert Weil purchased his first vineyards on the Rheingau hillsides. A century-and-a-half later, Robert’s descendant Wilhelm Weil has made a name for his family’s seamless, meticulous and precise style of wines — wines revered across the globe as among Germany’s most superlative Rieslings. These are Rieslings with all of the spice and fruit, elegance and complexity and acidity and balance you could wish for in a wine.

So come along! Bring a friend! Raise a glass of glorious Reisling with us!

This isn’t just a chance to taste wine. This is an opportunity to explore an array of the greatest wines in Germany. All hosted by our friend Nicolas Pfaff from Weingut Robert Weil.

And all for free!
