Johannes Geil farms 30 hectares of Riesling and many forgotten varieties in the village of Bechtheim. His ancestors were some of the very first to cultivate and bottle wine here and plantings in Bechtheim were recognized as superior in the tax maps of 1780.
What importer Skurnik Wines has to say about this wine...
Drink On Its Own , Drink With Spicy Food
Is there a better grape than Riesling? Is there a better value? Its fruit purity, its perfume, and its mineral nuance are all unparalleled. And for centuries, the top German Rieslings were priced accordingly: at least as expensive as the top red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But nowadays you could spend a lifetime exploring Germany’s great Riesling-producing regions while staying well within your budget. You might take an occasional break to try Germany’s other white grapes or perhaps a glass of Spätburgunder (the local name for Pinot Noir). It’s time to get started!
