Von Winning Grainhubel Riesling GG 2015

Weingut Von Winning is located in the Northern Pfalz region in Germany, right next to Rheinhessen in the East and the border of France in the West. Pfalz is Germanys second largest wine region. The region is submerged in historical and cultural sites. There are many castles from the medieval ages surrounding the landscape, and the iconic "Hardt" mountain range covered by massive forrest`s is a landmark that can be viewed from almost the entire region.

Pfalz

The Von Winning winery was established in 1849 but it wasn't until 1907 that the real history of the winery started to unfold. It was at this point in history Leopold von Winning made the decision to devote his life to the craftsmanship of high quality wines. He eventually succeeded and become one of the founding members of the VDP. His vision was to always keep the terroir in focus and thus letting nature affect the wine to a greater extent.

The winery was bought by Achim Niederberger in 2007, and he hired Stephan Attman to run the estate. Since then the quality and repution has kept climbing. In the last 8 years Niederberger has purchased some of the best sites in Pfalz. The name Von Winning is now synonymous  with some of the best wine producers in Germany.
