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.

Bistrotisch

KLEINES JACOB WINE BAR

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.

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.

WACHAU

WINEGROWING REGION

Wachau, the narrow Danube valley between Melk and Krems, is a beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Austrian winegrowing area covers 1,344 hectares. Grüner Veltliner and Riesling thrive on the terraces, some of which are steep. These superior locations provide some of the world’s best white wines with decades of development potential. In the Wachau area, members of the Vinea Wachau association use three brands to distinguish between their wines’ natural alcohol content. A fine light wine up to 11.5% is called Steinfeder (after stipa pennata feather grass), the classic category (11.5 to 12.5% alcohol) is called Federspiel and a potent reserve wine Smaragd. All of these wines are dry.

Frischengruber vineyard

The vineyard’s located in Rührsdorf–Rossatz and Georg Frischengruber is the fifth generation of the family to manage it. This region is situated to the right of the Danube and still something of an insider tip. After working and gaining experience at several vineyards, for instance in South Africa and New Zealand, Georg took over the family business from his father Heinrich in 2014. The vineyard has 10 hectares planted with vines with Grüner Veltliner predominating. The soils are mostly weathered primary rock mixed with loess and sand. The vineyard likes to apply cultivation methods that are as close to nature as possible.

RHEINHESSEN

WINEGROWING REGION

The area planted with vines between Alzey, Worms, Mainz and Bingen, surrounded in the north and east by the vast curve of the Rhine, totals 26,000 hectares. Therefore, it’s no surprise that virtually every village in Rhenish Hesse from the terraces of the Rhine to Wonnegau all the way to the Alzey hills can look back on a long tradition of wine making. The Romans were already cultivating wine in the area to the left of the Rhine and the oldest evidence of a German vineyard - the Niersteiner Glöck - is a vineyard in Rhenish Hesse. This is an ideal climate for growing wine. The hills to the west protect the winegrowing area and the region has little rainfall, warm summers and mild winters.

Tobias Krämer vineyard

Tobias Krämer isn’t a man of many words. He prefers to let his work do the talking, but when he does speak he tells it like it is. This also goes for Tobias’s vision of a good wine that he makes on his parents’ vineyard, which he has now taken over, in Gau Weinheim. His wines are understated and it’s less the fruit, but more the distinctive soil that you can taste in them. Tobias’s vines grow on Wissberg, which primarily consists of white limestone. By Rhenish Hesse standards, the impressive slopes are almost steep. Tobias doesn’t add too much sugar and limits the alcohol content so that this special terroir can be tasted. The French restaurant guide Gault Millau has already called him “a rising star”.

MOSEL

WINEGROWING REGION

The Mosel winegrowing area is the oldest wine region in Germany. Top Rieslings stand apart for their minerality and surprising elegance and grow on prehistoric shale in Europe’s steepest vineyards. On the around 250 km that the Mosel covers from the Luxembourg border to Coblenz, this unique winegrowing area lines the river and offshoots of the Saar and Ruwer tributaries. The protected micro-climate in the river valleys makes the region one of Germany’s warmest – and the prehistoric slate beds are the basis for the region’s mineral Rieslings.

Kirsten vineyard

In 1992, Bernhard Kirsten took over the Kirsten vineyard located on the slopes of the Mosel from his parents. It all started with a few vineyards in Klüsserath – but all that remains is a plot on the Klüsserath Mosel Front. Bernhard Kirsten has devoted a lot of time and hard work into turning a small vineyard into a renowned vineyard where wine is grown on slopes. Kirsten currently has an area of 20 hectares planted with vines that are located along the Mosel and in Klüsserath, Pölich, Mehring, Longuich and Köwerich. He cultivates over 14 varieties of wine including Riesling, white Burgundy, Sauvignon blanc, pinot noir and var-ious types of sparkling wine.

NAHE

WINEGROWING REGION

Wine has been cultivated in the area on the Nahe and the Glan and Alsenz tributaries for 2,000 years. Protected from cold winds by the Hunsrück hills, mild temperatures and lots of sunshine are the ideal climate for wine growing in the sunny valley with its low rainfall. Vines such as Riesling, Rivaner and Silvaner grow here on around 4,000 hectares. A rich geological history has given the Nahe region a whole host of different soils. The vines grow on shale, volcanic porphyritic, loess or clay soils. This allows a diverse range of vines and styles of wine. The Nahe winegrowing area has the most diverse soils nationwide and connoisseurs call it the insider tip in the south west of Germany for good reason.

Laura Weber vineyard

Founded in 1732, this old family-owned vineyard is located on one of the most attractive sections of the Nahe and Laura Weber is the 10th generation of the family to run the business with her parents. After graduating in oenology and gaining further experience abroad, Laura started to cultivate her own wines, calling them Edition L. The close-knit team of parents and daughter has everything required of an established family vineyard: experience, expertise, a team spirit and new ideas. The well-known Frühlingsplätzchen and Halenberg areas in Monzing are cultivated with state-of-the-art equipment. Honed to perfection by the micro-climate in the Frühlingsplätzchen and Halenberg areas, the wines are complex, aromatic, sophisticated and with an incomparably enduring taste.

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.
