Episcopal Winery Rüdesheim

The winery is located in the community of Rüdesheim-Eibingen in the German Rheingau wine growing region. The origins go back to the 11th century. The monastery cellar dates back to 1683 and the business was created in the 1980s from the former Rüdesheim parish estate. Finally, a limited liability company was founded in 2009, which belongs 100% to the diocese of Limburg. Silke Trick has been responsible as managing director since 2011, and Peter Perabo as operations manager and cellar master since 2007. The vineyards comprise nine hectares of vineyards in the individual sites Berg Schlossberg, Berg Roseneck, Berg Rottland, Bischofsberg, Magdalenenkreuz and Klosterlay (Rüdesheim), as well as Hölle(Johannisberg). They are planted to 80% with the Lewit variety Riesling, the rest withPinot Noir. The vineyards are cultivated in a natural way with ecological/biological pest control. Quality criteria in the vineyards are yield reduction and selective manual harvesting. Spontaneous fermentation is used in part. The Riesling is also matured in traditional large wooden barrels. The red wines are bottled without filtration after maceration and ageing. Among the premium wines are Riesling Berg "Episcopus" and Riesling Roseneck "Alte Reben". About 50,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. Marc(marc spirit) of Pinot Noir is also produced.
