Riesling. King of the grapes.

Riesling is the dominant grape variety in the Hessen winegrowing areas of Rheingau and Bergstrasse. First mentioned in around 1500, its complex aromatics and lively acidity have given it the title 'king of German wines'. In 1775, the first late vintage was created on the Johannisberg Estate in the Rheingau, where, according to legend, the grape harvest was delayed by the late arrival of a horseback messenger.
