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 Wachau, Rheinhessen, Mosel and Nahe.

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.

One fifth of the Rhineland-Palatinate region of Rhenish Hesse, which is also the area with the least forest in the whole of Germany, is planted with vines. Over 6,000 winemakers produce more than 2.5m hectolitres of wine from approx. 120m vines each year. Of the 136 boroughs in Rhenish Hesse, it’s only Budenheim, Hochborn, Eich, Hamm and Nieder-Wiesen that don’t cultivate any wine in their own district. Rhenish Hesse is also one of the places most steeped in winegrowing tradition because wine has been cultivated there since 20BC. Dating back to 742, Nierstein’s Niersteiner Glöck is the oldest officially documented winegrowing area in Germany. After the construction of the wine cellar in Bremen in 1405, initially only wines from Rhenish Hesse were served there – the standard and the more superior variety.

Peth-Wetz Vineyard

Christian Peth’s vineyard, which he runs with his wife Maja Luise, is located between Worms and Alzey. As the owner and cellar master, Christian cultivates 30 hectares of vines around Bermersheim, Dalsheim and Westhofen. The vines grow on loess and limestone soils. The Gault Millau Wine Guide already rates it as one of the leading red wine vineyards in Rhenish Hesse.

The wine has a distinctive taste. Christian likes full-bodied, concentrated, characterful wines rich in tannins of the type he became acquainted with during his time in Chile, Australia and the US, during his training to become a winemaker and while taking his viticulture degree in Geisenheim.



The name Ahr is based on the Celtic word Aha, meaning water. The river Ahr runs through a deep, steep gorge with rugged rocks and crevices and into the Ahr hills. This is not only a romantic, picturesque sight, but also a place where red wine is cultivated in the far north of the winegrowing area. The Romans also settled here due to the special climate that the Ahr valley offers with its steep slopes that lap up the sun’s rays.

Meyer-Näkel Vineyard

Together with our mother Claudia, our father gradually increased our vineyard to its present size and became involved in numerous other initiatives and projects. He also made sure very early on that his two daughters, in other words us – Meike and Dörte – could follow in his footsteps. Consequently, we both first trained to be winegrowers, studied viticulture in Geisenheim and then gradually took over running the business. Today, our dad gives us a completely free hand while still providing practical support. Handing over the reins from one generation couldn’t have gone more smoothly.

We continue to do exactly what our dad always wanted and still wants to do, which is to ensure our mineral and fruity wines reflect the wonderful terroirs of our steep slopes on the river Ahr. Producing the wines requires huge care and attention and smaller harvests, where the grapes are picked and selected by hand while following strict criteria. And we have a really great team on board. In the cellar, it’s vital to use careful methods to maintain this high quality.



Covering 350 hectares, around half of Vienna’s winegrowing area is located to the north west of the city. The area is located on the slopes of Kahlenberg and Nussberg with winegrowing locations in Nussdorf, Grinzing, Sievering, Heiligenstadt, Neustift am Walde and Salmannsdorf. In addition, around 260 hectares of vineyards are cultivated at the foot of the Bisamberg north of the Danube. Traditional wine-growing villages such as Stammersdorf, Strebersdorf and Jedlersdorf are located there. Smaller wine-growing regions can be found in the south of Vienna at Mauer and Oberlaa at Laaer Berg. The smallest vineyard in Vienna can be found at Schwarzenbergplatz in the city centre.

Fuhrgassl–Huber vineyard

The vineyard’s foundation can be traced back to Ernst Huber and his wife Gerti, who, back in the 1970s, reinterpreted the concept of Viennese taverns where wine is served under a special licence during the growing season. With its range of different rooms and magnificent garden for guests, Fuhrgassl-Huber quickly became the epitome of typical Viennese hospitality as indigenous as Viennese wine itself. The wines range from classic light wines to full-bodied ones from the best vineyards in Vienna. In his grandfather, Ernst Huber, young winemaker Thomas Huber has someone to advise him at his side who knows every inch of the Viennese vineyards and planted many of the vines with his own hands over 30 years ago.



In Switzerland, winegrowing chiefly takes place in Valais and in the French-speaking western Swiss cantons of Waadt , Neuenburg , Geneva and in the Three Lakes region. In the German-speaking part of Switzerland, winegrowing is concentrated in the German-speaking areas of the Three Lakes region, as well as the cantons of Aargau, Zurich, Schaffhausen, Thurgau and Grisons. The canton of Ticino primarily cultivates red wines. Swiss wines are mostly drunk in Switzerland, with only 1 to 2% exported. Demand exceeds the amount of wine produced, which is largely cultivated on difficult terrain. This leads to high prices and the temptation to create conditions to produce very high yields. Since the legal framework in Switzerland has been tightened by the creation of protected designations of origin, or appellations, the quality of Swiss wine has increased. The growing conditions in very small vineyards on steep slopes are difficult.

Provins Vineyard

Provins is the biggest producer of Swiss wines and one of the biggest contributors to the Valais economy. Provins accounts for 20% of Valais wine production and 10% of Swiss wine production. The cooperative processes the grapes from almost 800 hectares of vines from the entire Valais winegrowing region. As the Swiss vineyard with the most national and international awards, Provins was named Swiss Winemaker of the Year in 2008 and 2013. The outstanding results from the whole range of wines bear testimony to the hugely skilled team of oenologists and the tireless commitment of the 3,200 members of the cooperative who harvest first-class grapes to press characterful wines. Chandra Kurt, well-known journalist and author of several wine books, has chosen Provins to create her own collection. The limited product line concentrates on old grape varieties that symbolise the tradition of Valais and Switzerland.


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.
