This is Germany’s oldest wine producer. Monks were growing vines on the property already in 1136. All grapes used in the making of this wine come from a vineyard called Steinberger, owned by Kloster Eberbach for 800 years. This vineyard is producing wines ranging from completely dry to very sweet using iesling grapes, and Riesling is the only grape variety that can be used this widely.
