This category includes high-quality cuvées sourced from our vineyard holdings throughout the region.
Centuries-old tradition and contemporary taste combine forces to yield modern classics for everyday enjoyment.
The wines from the appellation Schloss Reichartshausen
are also part of this category. According to
the wine law, the appellation is an independent community rather than an individual vineyard site
(a status shared by a handful of vineyards in Germany).
The appellation of origin Schloss Reichartshausen is solely owned by Balthasar Ress. It belonged
to the Cistercian monastery Kloster Eberbach from the early 12th century and until the early 19th
century was one of the monastery's important outlying properties. Today, it is home to the renowned
European Business School. In carrying on the great tradition of Kloster Eberbach, Balthasar Ress
cultivates only Riesling vines here, which - thanks to the soil structure - yield very racy wines
with a pronounced acidity.
