The perfection of Riesling

Riesling wines are valued as being the finest and most fascinating of all the white wines in the world. The Riesling grape is exclusively cultivated in moderate climatic zones. Undisputedly one of the finest wine-growing areas, the Rheingau outshines all its neighbouring regions. This is where the Riesling grape is grown to perfection on and around the famous slopes of Eltville.

City of Sparkling Wine

Matheus Müller (MM, today Rotkäppchen-Mumm) was one of the region’s first to produce sparkling wine (Sekt) using the Méthode champenoise. MM Extra is one of the best-known sparkling wine brands in Germany.

Eltville’s second major sparkling wine producer is Schloss Vaux. Founded in Berlin in 1868, it today processes the harvest of the best Rheingau vineyards to create its premium sparkling wines of exclusive quality. The city’s sparkling wine industry is complemented by several local winegrowers who produce their own distinctive cuvées.
