A fine German Pinot

Wine of the Month

Geil Pinot Noir 2015

The Geil family is his historically linked to Rheinhessen, and their roots go all the way back to 1871. That is when Georg Geil bought an old condemned building in the city of Bechtheim.

The company is still family run by Johannes Geil. With a tremendous passion and drive he has already received several awards for his wines. His main focus is to create expressive wines from Riesling, Silvaner and Spætburgunder (Pinot Noir)

The Geil Family makes wines from the entire spectrum within the German quality hierarchy. From simple Gutswein to commune level wine called Ortswein and then of course the very best Grand Cru Lagenweine, which is produced from carefully selected and handpicked grapes.
