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.



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.



The area’s called after the river Kamp and Langenlois is the most important town in Austria in terms of wine – and at 3,907 hectares of area planted with vines and numerous internationally well-known top vineyards, Kamptal is one of the country’s most successful winegrowing areas. Culture and tourism also play a special role here. The term Kamptal DAC stands for wines made from Grüner Veltliner or Riesling, either of the classic medium-bodied variety or as a full-bodied dry reserve.

In Kamptal, you increasingly encounter different rock formations: from loess to gravel to distinctive crystalline ranges and red sandstone and conglomerates on the famous Heiligenstein ridge. The name indicates the powerful rays of the sun, which generate a hot and dry microclimate. The formation of the rocks is very interesting: they’re between 320 and 250 million years old, were deposited in a desert in flash floods and include volcanic components.

Markus Waldschütz vineyard

The Waldschütz vineyard is located in Strass-Elsarn at the beginning of the Kamptal valley. This idyllic spot on the Kamp river is also the name for a key winegrowing area and has so many points in its favour that it’s justifiably considered one of Austria’s most exciting. Reinhard Waldschütz, a qualified winegrower and cellar master, has been managing the family-owned vineyard, which is 30 hectares in size, since 1994. Since 2010, his son Markus has been contributing his own skills and experience to his parents’ business. Gravel soils on the slopes of the Manhartsberg and the vast loess deposits to the south of the Kamptal dominate the soils.



The largest winegrowing area extends from the Danube in the south to the Czech border in the north, from Manhartsberg in the west to the Slovakian border in the east. But Weinviertel has a variety of wines to offer, alongside the General Grüner Veltliner there are also plenty of other grape varieties. The winegrowing area can be divided into three sections – particularly where the influences of the climate and geological conditions are concerned. In the west of Weinviertel, anyone coming for the wine should head for two areas, starting with the region around Retz with its vast cellars underneath the old town, which are reminders of the historic importance of the wine trade there. The dry microclimate has always fostered the production of red wines.

Elisabeth Rücker vineyard

Elisabeth and her father Edmund both manage the vineyard in the north of Weinviertel. She has her own very personal affinity to the wines, which is why she also gave them her first name. Her approach is unusual, she likes to tread new paths. The focus is on work in the vineyard itself. The white wines ferment in a steel tank and are in contact with the fine yeast for a long time, which gives them a complex structure and long shelf life. Each year, it’s a new challenge to get the best out of the grapes. The vineyard’s aim is to produce authentic and excitingly different wines.



The Moselle winegrowing region covers 8,770 hectares of area planted with vines in the Moselle valley and along the Saar and Ruwer tributaries. The vineyards extend along the river Moselle from the Franco-German border near Perl in Saarland all the way to Coblenz as well as along the lower courses of the rivers Saar, Ruwer, Sauer and Lieser and in further side valleys. More than 98% of the vineyards are located in the Rhineland Palatinate. More than 3,000 winemakers brave the steep slopes daily to harvest the best grapes for their high-quality wines. Steep slopes in the river valleys, the densely planted vines and the unmistakable slate soil shape the landscape like virtually no other winegrowing area in the world and make the Moselle unique.

Franzen vineyard

Bremm has been the home of the Franzen family for centuries and they’ve been growing wine in the Lower Moselle for a long time. When Ulrich Franzen took over the business from his parents in the 1980s, he changed the vineyard’s strategy and focused on creating dry wines. He also very much wanted to maintain the steep slopes. After he had a tragic accident, Kilian and Angelina Franzen took over the vineyard, somewhat earlier than planned, in 2010. The two of them ensured that there was an even greater focus on maintaining winegrowing on the steep slopes at the Franzen vineyard, that modern and traditional philosophies were combined and that you can make your mark, even when you’re very young.



A landscape with vineyards, steep terraces, centuries-old dry-stone walls, vineyard cottages and river valleys define the Saale-Unstrut winegrowing area, which is around 760 hectares in size and where wine has been cultivated for over 1,000 years. Today, the winegrowing region is located in the German states of Saxony-Anhalt (639 hectares) and Thuringia (108 hectares). Approaching from Jena, downriver on the Saale and in the footsteps of the Erl King, the Dornburg castles are already in sight. Our vineyard in Löberschütz, with vines on the Grosser Gleisberg and Hohe Lehde, is located in the picturesque Gleis Valley, a side valley of the Saale. The quality of our wines is based on the vines themselves, the location, the climate, the soils and the place where hills store the mineral water from which the vine roots grow. These aspects are combined with the winemaker’s expertise on the terroir.

Proppe vineyard

Our Thuringian wines have their own special character because so much of our work is consistently done by hand, we’re creative, apply traditional and contemporary winemaking and wine cellar approaches, ensure sufficient maturation and harvest our grapes late. Our wines are pressed from grapes hand-picked in our vineyards. In all areas of our business, we place emphasis on high-quality work done by hand and consequently produce a limited number of fine wines to reflect the special nature of the location. We work hard to achieve this goal and produce fruity and distinctive wines.


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.
