In addition, we pack our brand new brochures, which explain the concept of terroir wines in detail.
Unlike most white wines, Riesling is excellent at aging; even over decades, the extract and the fruity acidity develop positively and reinforce the character of the terroir, its origin, so to speak: the Riesling vine has an extremely sensitive reaction to its environment, and by that we actually mean the rock on which the vineyard rests. Because even if all other parameters (grape variety, aging, alcohol content, etc.) are identical, the wines taste completely different, depending on the soil and rock they grew on.
At the Graf von Weyher winery, Riesling accounts for a whopping 25% of the area under cultivation. Particularly unusual (and we're a little proud of that): we have four (!) different types of rock in this relatively small area, and that's rare! Slate, red sandstone, lime marl and granite . In this way, we can also grow four different terroir wines (or vineyard wines).
We've explained the concept of terroir wines in detail (and entertainingly) in a brand new brochure .

Very, very tasty and good wines [...] In my opinion, the dry Riesling and the red wine cuvée are particularly recommended. [ ... ]
