The global reputation of the German white wine community has its roots in the Rheingau, home to both the wine-making estate of Schloss Johannisberg and the village of Hochheim. Both names have been adapted around the world as synonyms for Riesling (such as Johannisberg Riesling and Hock).
The Rheingau is one of the most geographically specific wine regions on the planet with the Rhine (Rhein) River running on the south side and the Taunus mountains along the north. It is an area best known for its small viticultural sites, amazing landscape and perfect microclimate for the delicate Riesling and Pinot Noir grape varietals.
