Young Jacob

The winery in the municipality of Erbach is located in the German wine-growing region Rheingau, It has been family owned since 1799. After the early death of his father, Ludwig Jung joined the business in 1969 and took over the winery from his mother in 1974 after completing the master vineyard examination. After years of practice in the winery Bercher (Baden) and Kaapzicht (Stellenbosch, South Africa) and degree in viticulture as Dipl. Ing Geisenheim son Alexander Johannes Jung is responsible for the vinification. He is assisted by his father in the care of the vineyards. In recent years, the winery was significantly expanded by buying land. This includes a more than 250-year-old rock cellar with a total length of 110 meters, which is eight meters underground and offers ideal conditions for expansion and storage

The vineyards cover ten hectares of vineyards in the individual layers Hohenrain. Marcobrunn. Michel Mark. Siegelsberg and Steinmorgen (Erbach), as well Sandgrub (Kiedrich). They are planted with the varieties Riesling (82%), Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer. It is a near-natural management of the vineyards with permanent greening, waiving herbicides and minimized plant protection. After gentle pressing and cooled, aroma-preserving fermentation, the Riesling wines - in the stainless steel tank - are stored long on the lees to get more fruit, fullness and extract. After a long maturation process, the predominantly dry and semi-dry Rieslings are bottled in the summer. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay ripen in traditional large oak barrels or barriques until shortly before the new harvest. The winery has been a member since 1997 VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter).
