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.

PFALZ

WINEGROWING REGION

The “German wine route” runs from Bockenheim in the north to Schweigen in the south. With around 23,500 ha of area cultivated, it has 25 major and 323 smaller vineyards and is the second largest winegrowing area in Germany. At over 20%, the well-known Riesling is the most popular of the grape varieties and white wines dominate. But the wine growers also cultivate Müller-Thurgau, Kerner, Silvaner, Pinot blanc, Dornfelder, Blauer Portugieser, Pinot noir and many other specialities.

Kranz vineyard

The current generation of the Kranz family is the fourth to cultivate wine over an area of about 18 ha. And thanks to Boris Kranz’s skills, the Kranz vineyard has been a member of the Association of German Prädikat Wine Estates e. V. since 2012. The Gault Millau restaurant guide praises the vineyard’s wines for their taste, which is full of character. Special mention is made of the mineral Rieslings and the luscious particularly popular Pinot blancs. Boris Kranz’s goal is to make original and authentic wines that convey the taste of the fruit and terroir. Kranz is a trained oenotechnician and clearly has the right feel for what the exceptional vineyards require and their potential. By virtue of hard graft and the support of his family, he has succeeded in making his business what it is today.

BADEN

WINEGROWING REGION

The third-largest German winegrowing area covers a stretch of about 400 km from the river Tauber to Lake Constance and is divided into 16 major areas and 306 smaller areas. Two thirds of the wines cultivated in Baden are white. Pinot noir is the most prevalent of the grape varieties, but Müller-Thurgau, Pinot gris, Riesling, Chasselas, Pinot blanc, Silvaner and Traminer are also encountered.

Daniel Landerer vineyard

Daniel Landerer lives in the Kaiserstuhl hills and describes his vineyard as his “playground and workplace”. The Kaiserstuhl is a beautiful, unspoilt and sunny place and the former lava flows gave rise to the impressive vineyard terraces, which, in conjunction with the weather, provide the perfect conditions for cultivating wine. The combination and different composition of loess and volcanic rock are ideal for classic burgundy wines of international repute. The volcano stores heat and offers excellent minerality, giving the wines a lot of class and ensuring they last. Loess is the perfect partner; it stores the water and therefore makes it possible to cultivate wine on our terraces. This is a combination that’s unique the world over. Daniel Landerer primarily cultivates burgundy wines which are complemented by Sauvignon blanc, Chardonnay and Auxerrois.

WAGRAM

WINEGROWING REGION

Today’s Wagram wine-growing area was still called Donauland until 2007. In the north, the beautiful and unspoilt landscape runs parallel to the Danube and is virtually ideal for wine cultivation. The loess layer is very thick here and the roots of the vines can grow deep into the soil so that the relative dryness of this region is well compensated for. Due to the Pannonian-style climate, the wines grow to profound maturity. The main variety is the Grüner Veltliner but the regional specialities Frührote and Roter Veltliner (both are white wines despite the word “rot”, meaning red in German) are also cultivated here. The red wines are dominated by the Zweigelt, followed by the Blauer Portugieser and Pinot noir.

Nimmervoll vineyard

The Nimmervoll vineyard is an area planted with vines over 17 ha and situated on the northern edge of the Wagram. The combination of expertise and modern cellar technology delivers top-quality wines. Specific yield reduction by thinning out the grapes by hand creates a higher level of sugar and extract contents and therefore better grape quality. The grapes are only picked by hand, pressed carefully and fermented under constant control in stainless steel tanks. The most mature red wines are stored in new barrique barrels and therefore lent extra fullness and complexity. At about 35% of the area planted with vines, the Grüner Veltliner is the vineyard’s main variety. But the Roter Veltliner, Riesling, Pinot blanc and Sauvignon blanc are also cultivated.

SLOVENIAN STYRIA

WINEGROWING REGION

Slovenian Styria is defined by slopes and terraces. What’s more, it’s among the five percent of best wine-growing locations in the world. Ideal soils and a pleasant climate ensure a diverse range of varieties. In particular, it’s the classy white wines typical of the varieties that the region’s famous for. About 95% of the wines produced are white. In addition to good dry and medium-dry wines, top semi-sweet and sweet wines, such as Spätlese, Auslese, Beerenauslese or ice wine, are also produced.

Puklavec vineyard

Back in 1934, the Puklavec family discovered their love of wine – in Slovenian Styria. Martin Puklavec was a cellar master at the time and had a vision that the best wine’s produced by teamwork. Puklavec Family Wines is situated in the art of Jeruzalem-Ormo in Slovenian Styria in a winegrowing area called Podravje. This region’s micro climate provides the perfect conditions for wine growing. Right up until today, Puklavec Family Wines makes its products with passion, diligence and commitment to quality, underscored by the family’s love of wine itself. Vladimir Puklavec and his two daughters Tatjana and Kristina and the entire vineyard team pull out all the stops to ensure excellent wines. This results in wonderful, well-balanced wines that reflect the terroir.

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. 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.
