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 Weinviertel, Southern Tyrol, Saale-Unstrut and Rheinhessen.

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.

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.

REGIONS & WINEMAKERS

Four regions define our wine list and menu for three months at a time. Discover the character and quality of our four winegrowing areas and winemakers here.

MOSEL

WINEGROWING REGION

The Mosel is Germany’s oldest and one of Europe’s traditional winegrowing regions. The Mosel and its tributaries the Saar and Ruwer flow through an area steeped in tradition where the Celts and Romans planted vines 2000 years ago. Today more than 4,000 winemakers in over 100 winegrowing areas cultivate about 55 million vines in vineyards covering 8,800 hectares along the 243-kilometre stretch of the German Mosel. The most important vine is the Riesling which is considered the world’s best white wine and thrives on the slopes’ slate soils.

Walter vineyard

We currently cultivate 7.0 ha of vineyards on the Lower Moselle. The majority of our vines are cultivated in vineyards at a gradient of up to 55°. The location and the slate soils are the basis for the distinctive, elegant and characterful Rieslings. As a small family-run vineyard we can enhance the quality of the wine ourselves. We use long maceration periods, spontaneous fermentation and long periods of time resting on the lees to mature the wines in order to give them a good structure and character without neglecting a precise finish. All our vineyards are harvested in several stages and the musts are developed separately. When fermentation in stainless-steel tanks and the period of time spent resting on the lees has been completed, we blend individual phases of the harvest and different shale formations. This results in our multi-faceted wines with combinations of freshness, fruit, seasonings and cool minerality.

PFALZ

WINEGROWING REGION

The German wine route runs from Bockenheim in the north to Schweigen in the south. With about 23,500 hectares cultivated, 25 major vineyards and 323 smaller ones, this is the second largest winegrowing area in Germany. At over 20% the famous Riesling is the most popular grape and white wines in general predominate. The winemakers also cultivate Müller-Thurgau, Kerner, Silvaner, white Burgundy, Dornfelder, Portugieser, pinot noir and many other specialities.

Seckinger vineyard

The Seckinger Vineyard is the youngest vineyard in Niederkirchen. We describe our philosophy as being back to the roots: “We work with nature and not against it and only harvest healthy vines for our wines. All our wines are fermented spontaneously. We don’t use any chemical wine treatment methods because we want our wines to be distinctive. We cultivate 8.5 hectares of vineyard organically and primarily grow Riesling, pinot blanc, gris and noir. We’ve made it our mission to recultivate old overgrown terraces on the Haardt hills and plant Riesling there. One of these areas rediscovered in 2014 is called Deidesheimer Petershöhe. Our most important areas are located around Deidesheim and called Kieselberg, Langenmorgen, Leinhöhle and Paradiesgarten. Königsbach has the Ölberg and Ruppertsberg the Reiterpfad. The type of rocks range here from red-yellow Bunter sandstone in Deidesheim and Ruppertsberg. The very calcareous areas in Königsbach are a huge contrast.

FRANCONIA

WINEGROWING REGION

Wine has been cultivated in Franconia’s vineyards and cellars for over 1,200 years. Once virtually only produced by monasteries, today it’s in the capable hands of many professional winemakers. The Franconian vines thrive on around 6,300 hectares. Just under 85 per cent of the vines are destined for white wines – primarily Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau and Bacchus. But the red wines are equally superb, some of them are velvety, some fruity and some piquant.

Weigand vineyard

The way father and son work together in the vineyards is defined by the father’s longstanding experience and the son’s new ideas. Andi is 25 and the new cellar master in the vineyard. Full of enthusiasm and energy he bottles the kind of wine he would like to drink. He’s one of a new generation of winemakers who want to make their mark. The focus is on the Silvaner. All the wines are fermented spontaneously in pre-used wooden or stainless-steel tanks. Almost all the wines grow on Keuper that lends them their seasoned aroma.

CARNUNTUM

WINEGROWING REGION

The Carnuntum winegrowing region ranges from the east of Vienna to the border with Slovakia. The vineyards are located to the south of the Danube and cover three hilly landscapes: Leithagebirge, Arbesthaler Hügelland and Hainburger Berge. Heavy soils consisting of clay and loess and sandy-gravelly areas are ideal conditions, especially for red wines. The most popular locally grown type is the Blauer Zweigelt, followed by international newcomers like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The blue Frankish grape is grown in Carnuntum, particularly on Spitzerberg to the east of the winegrowing area. The Pannonian climate with its hot summers and cold winters, the Danube nearby and Lake Neusiedl which has a mild impact on temperatures, allow the blue grapes to mature fully.

Artner vineyard

Our primarily red vines cover around 35 hectares and are looked after carefully and with a certain passion the whole year round. The continental-Pannonian climate, which the Danube and Lake Neusiedl have a major influence on, offers the ideal conditions to develop our wine. Our regional classics and new top wines flourish and offer unique tastes and characteristics typical of the area the grapes grow. The history of our vineyard goes back to 1683. Over the past few years, the family-run Artner vineyard as become a real hotspot for authentic and characterful wines in the Carnuntum region. A traditional and down-to-earth approach is taken to coming up with innovative ideas and original concepts to produce the wines of the future that excel in terms of quality and their own character.

PRIVATE PARTIES

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.
