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 Nahe, Middle Rhine, Styria and Carnuntum.

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.

Bettina Schumann originally stems from Berlin and was barely 12 when she had an epiphany where wine is concerned. She’s 35 now, but back then was allowed to try a vin santo from 1905 while on holiday in Italy with her parents and she loved the freshness of this vintage wine. “During my youth, I liked to buy bottles of wine via my dad instead of nail varnish,” she recalls with a grin. Instead of glossy magazines, she read the trade press about wine and at 16, met a wine dealer by chance who took herto trade shows and events.

She then studied viticulture and oenology in Geisenheim and gained an additional diploma at the Italian partner university Udine and in 2009, worked as a manager at the Zimmerlin Vineyard. In 2010, she took the first step towards her own projects by founding the Rabe Vineyard with her former partner Ralph M. Ropohl. This was a vineyard based in a garage, offering Burgundy wines. The project’s still up and running but Bettina wanted something that truly belonged to her. In 2015, she didn’t just change her job but has been working as an oenological consultant ever since and also produced the first official vintage from the Bettina Schumann Vineyard.



This generation of the family-run business from Landau-Nussdorfis the fifth to be cultivating wine. After a new generation took over the helm in 2011, the vineyard is now run by Norbert and his two sons, Alexander and Martin Bauer, three people and two generations who have the same ideas about the vineyard’s future direction. It’s precisely this mix of old and new, experience and the desire to make what’s good even better that allows a new generation of red and white wines to ripen on almost 29 hectares of vineyards in the South Palatinate.

It’s a combination that has recently caused a stir, and not just in the trade press. Whether red or white, oenologist Alexander Bauer’s wines are beautifully palatable, well balanced and fun to drink. Just like the newly designed labels which are bold, eye-catching and honest.The Emil Bauer & Söhne Vineyard focuses on its very gently matured Rieslings and pinot blanc varieties and on red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which are matured in steel, wood, granite and oak barrels.



Before Leo Alzinger junior embarked on continuing the work his father started, he took the traditional route of many Austrian winemakers’ children by gaining qualifications from the School of Viticulture in Klosterneuburg. However, the years he spent elsewhere were more formative, with a spell at the Müller-Catoir Vineyard under the legendary cellar master Hans Günter Schwarz, which made a lasting impact. Working on a harvest in New Zealand completed his years as an apprentice.

Afterwards, Leo continued to be eager to learn and observe new styles and trends. Ultimately, however, it encouraged him to continue treadingthe path taken by his father. He wanted the terroir to speak for itself and focus on vintages. And so today he presses wines that on the one hand reflect the region and on the other hand focus on a cool, clear and precise style.



Anton Bauer, born in 1971, is the fourth generation of the family to run the vineyard, which is 29 hectares in size. After gaining qualifications at the Krems School of Viticulture and doing an internship in Burgundy, he spent four years as an oenologist at a renowned winegrower’s in Lower Austria. In 1992, he took over his parents’ vineyard, which was 3.2 hectares in sizeat the time, and since then has embraced his uncompromising idea of what quality should be.

It’s important to him to coax what’s typicalabout the region and the character of the terroir out of the wines, which is what make them unique.His success has proved him right because the demand for his wines is continuing unabated. His typical Austrian wines with their international flair have managed to conquer some of the world’s most competitive wine markets. Some 70% of annual production is exported, the most important customers being in the US, UK, Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium.


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.
