Robert Weil are a real Riesling ‘Chateau’, steeped in tradition yet with a very modern focus on the future.
Riesling rules supreme at Robert Weil. They don’t make anything else! The grape thrives in their top quality sites in the Rheingau, which were first purchased by Dr Robert Weil in 1867.
The winery is now run by fourth generation winemaker Wilhelm Weil, whose work over the past 30 years has helped to raise the international profile of German Riesling. He also introduced their iconic "Tiffany Blue" labels, which represent the timelessness, elegance and richness of their wines with a classic ‘Weil’ identity.
Harvest is a mammoth task, lasting a minimum of 8-10 weeks. As many as 17 passes of intensive and selective hand harvesting take place to ensure only the very best grapes make it to the winery. Not a challenge for the faint-hearted!
