New Wine Regions

We are happy to present you our new wine regions which are defining our wine list and menu for the next three months. Discover the character and quality of our four winegrowing areas Alsace, Württemberg, Baden and Burgenland.

Winegrower Parties

Every three months we present four new German winegrowing areas and completely change our menu and our drinks list for the next quarter. To mark the new quarter, a winegrower party is always on Elbchaussee with wines that we think are superb. Find out more here.



An appealing bar and place where the hosts understand wine. Young winemakers from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Alsace and southern Tyrol have found their place in Kleines Jacob wine bar on Elbchaussee. We believe variety is the spice of life. So we'll be introducing four new winemakers and their winegrowing areas with a chance to try the wine and food typical of their regions four times a year.



A wine bar that focuses on four regions. Take a glance here at our wines and accompanying dishes. Why not try something new or look forward to a favourite dish - from light snacks to tartes flambés? It'll be worth your while because we change our wine list and our menu every three months.

Germany’s fifth biggest wine-growing area and at around 10,000 ha biggest wine-growing area for Riesling is located on the Mosel and its Saar and Ruwer tributaries. A good half of all the vines in the area are Riesling – and the top wines produced here are world famous. The Riesling is also cultivated in many other areas and soils, but the slopes of the Mosel with their slate soils produce delicate, fine but still very concentrated Rieslings.

Dr. Fischer vineyard

In 2014, winemakers Nik Weis from St. Urbans-Hof Vineyard on the Mosel and Martin Foradori Hofstätter from J. Hofstätter Vineyard in South Tyrol decided, as co-owners, to update the established Dr. Fischer – Bocksteinhof vineyard. The vineyard on the Saar is well known for its Rieslings. It is also a founding member of the Association of German Prädikat Wine Estates (VDP). The small, internationally award-winning vineyard only cultivates the Riesling grape in the first-class Ockfener Bockstein and Saarburger Kupp areas. The steep slopes of the little village of Ockfen face south and southwest and consist primarily of large pieces of shale. In conjunction with the climate, this makes it an ideal position for clearly structured, fine and fruity Rieslings. The vines are cultivated individually on wooden piles on the majestic slopes of the Kupp. The Saarburger Kupp grapes are looked after and harvested by hand.



Wageck / Thomas Pfaffmann vineyard

Thomas Pfaffmann inherited his love of wine from his great-grandfather Wilhelm Wageck. In the first half of the 20th century, Wageck consistently turned the family-run farm in Bissersheim in the north of the Pfalz into a vineyard. Today, the company has several high-quality chalky acreages. Just like any new generation of winemaker, Thomas Pfaffmann also has his own ideas about what the wine from the northern chalky Pfalz soils should taste like. Which is why he’s now launching his own personal Wageck wine range. Its wines are pleasantly distinctive, multifaceted and harmonious with an expressive mineral touch. Thomas Pfaffmann’s Wageck wine range is quite a success story. Both the white and the red wines are all superb quality.



A brief description of the South Tyrol winegrowing area would be that it’s small but with plenty of variety. A wealth of unparalleled first-class wines are cultivated in an area where the rivers Eisack and Etsch meander from the snow-capped peaks of the north to the south with its fig and olive trees. Around 20 types of vines flourish in the relatively small 5,400 hectare vineyard in a mix of an alpine and Mediterranean climate and at an altitude of 200 to 1,000 metres above sea level. Top South Tyrolean wines regularly receive a very high ranking in the most important international wine guides.

Terlan vineyard

Founded in 1893 as one of the first cooperatives in South Tyrol, with acreage of 150 ha and annual production totalling 1.2m bottles today, Winery/Cantina Terlan is one of the country’s smaller businesses, which probably plays a major role in quality control. The vines enjoy ideal growing conditions in the protected Terlan basin. The high mineral level in the soils lends the wines their special mineral note and helps to ensure that they keep an exceptionally long time.

The Terlan vineyard produces red and white wine in equal measure. Cellar master Rudi Kofler’s method is to cultivate wine slowly and gently. The wines often lie on the yeast for years before they are allowed to develop to perfection at their leisure in barrels and bottles. Numerous international awards bear testimony to the wines’ mature personalities and quality.



The Carnuntum winegrowing area is scattered over three hilly areas and located to the east of Vienna and to the south of the Danube at the same time. Firm loess and chalky soils, as well as the continental-Pannonian climate are the ideal conditions for winegrowing. In May, the first hot spells encourage the vines to blossom, but these are usually followed by heavy showers in early summer that give the vines a good basis on which to survive the extremely dry and warm to very hot summer. The dry weather usually lasts until long in the autumn, so that Carnuntum is perfect for late-maturing varieties of red wine.

Artner vineyard

The primarily red vines from the Artner Vineyard are looked after on an area of about 35 hectares with a devotion and passion for the craft. The continental-Pannonian climate and the Danube and Lake Neusiedl play a major role in ensuring conditions are perfect. This is where our regional classics such as the Time for Action Chardonnay and new top wines flourish. Wine lovers appreciate the wines’ unique taste and characteristics typical of their origin. The history of the vineyard goes back to 1683. Over the past few years, the authenticity and character of the family-run ARTNER vineyard has turned it into a true Carnuntum hotspot. With a traditional-conscious and down-to-earth approach, the owners apply innovative ideas and original concepts to create the wines of the future that stand apart for their quality and individual character.


The location is superb, the atmosphere relaxed and so much more than just a table for four. You can book Kleines Jacob exclusively for a few hours for an unforgettable birthday party, a business anniversary, or an enjoyable family event. You can have our down-to-earth cabin-like room all to yourself with the seating you require. It's difficult to imagine a cosier evening with guests and a glass of wine.



Indulge in some pleasurable moments in the wine bar by attending our winemakers' party that takes place every quarter, or by enjoying one of our cosy, casual wine and conversation evenings, or other exciting events. Take your pick of an event to suit your taste.



Every three months we present four new German winegrowing areas and completely change our menu and our drinks list for the next quarter.
