Impressions from Schloss Johannisberg

Here are some catches Felix took at Schloss Johannisberg last Sunday. Schloss Johannisberg is the oldest Riesling-growing estate in the world; Riesling was planted here for the first time in 1720. Its wines were the most demanded and expensive in the 19th century, even more prestigious than Bordeaux at that time. Especially the sweet wines are still excellent (and very expensive). We had beautiful weather here these last 3 days and leaves are starting to grow on the vines. Is this going to be a nice vintage? Way too early to tell but nevertheless a nice start!
