Schloss Johannisberg stands for 1200 years of winemaking history....It is the birthplace of one of the oldest and noblest grape varieties in the world – Riesling.
50° Riesling pays homage to the Rheingau, one of the most unique wine regions in the world. Production of its superb cuvée remains under the watchful care of Schloss Johannisberg, the master house of Riesling for over 1200 years.
The marriage of the French art of Cuvee-making with traditional German winemaking craftsmanship gives Henkell a rich complexity with a fruit forward lightness that is distinctly German.
Established in 817, Schloss Johannisberg is the first Riesling estate winery in the world. It is attributed with discovering Spätlese (late harvest) in 1775, and today, the winery remains focused on crafting diverse Rieslings that reflect the inimitable character of the Rheingau.
