Chateau Schloss Reinhartshausen has been a pillar of Rheingau wine culture for 680 years. Even today, the spirit of both past and present courses through our walls. All here breath Riesling! The original Chateau bottlings promise world-class quality, now and forever, from the heart of the Rheingau. We, the Lergenmüller family, honor and cherish our outstanding vineyard sites by respecting the flora and fauna that thrive there. Following each selective harvest, our task is merely to preserve and guide the outstanding fruit arriving from the vineyards. Traditionally considered among the most cellarable bottles in all of the Rheingau, we are honored to give our wines the time necessary to mature. We hope you enjoy our distinctive, harmonious, and terroir-driven Riesling as much as we do.
Dr. Karin and Stefan Lergenmüller with family and team
Mariannenaue, an island on the Rhine River, is a designated European Nature Reserve and, since 2015, a protected appellation for quality wine.
Roughly 10,000 years ago, Father Rhine shaped Mariannenaue Island with his powerful currents, forming a limestone bedrock from sand and stones carried down from the Alps.
Thanks to the islands striking location directly in the middle of the Rhine, an extraordinary micro-climate fosters optimal conditions for grape growing. 24 hectares of Weißburgunder, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Roter Riesling thrive in our stunning vineyards, leading to fantastic and distinctive wines that beautifully reflect their unmistakable home.
The narrower the origin of a wine, the higher its quality.” This motto is the bedrock of the Rheinhartshausen philosophy and allows us to structure our wine portfolio in a straight forward and approachable manner. With its strict implementation of site-based classification, Schloss Reinhartshausen continually raises the bar for what a Riesling can be.
