Founded in 1900, Johann Baptist Schafer is a family-run winery, now in its fourth generation. Located in Burg Layen on the Nahe River, this is one of Germany's smaller wine regions. Despite this, the winery has become well-known for their distinctive Riesling and in 2013 became a member of the Association of German Pradikat Wine Estates (VDP). They are the first winery from the Nahe region to become a member in 12 years. Read more

Production note

Grapes handpicked selectively and then macerated for 12 hours before being pressed gently with very little pressure. Grapes then go through spontaneous fermentation and maturation in traditional wooden barrels and left on the fine lees until end of April.
