The Dominikaner Weingut C. von Nell-Breuning represents the rich heritage of wine making in Germany. Since 1670 our family has been devoted to the art of wine-growing in the Mosel and Ruwer. Beginning in 2013, Dr. Carmen von Nell-Breuning continues the family’s wine tradition into the 11th generation. Our estate only produces elegant Riesling, Riesling sparkling wines, and delicately fruity Pinot Noir from our steep slate vineyards in the Ruwer Valley. All the work in our vineyards is done by hand and hence all the grapes are hand-selected. In our winery, we work according to biodynamic principles.
Taste: Delicate fruit on the palate, and it shows the first suggestion of this wine’s great potential. Very smooth and compact now. Long on the palate.

Vinification: The delineated, enclosed Dominikanerberg vineyard is one of Germany's rare monopoly estates, owned exclusively by the von Nell- Breuning family. Its steep slopes provide the perfect microclimatic for brilliantly fruity Rieslings. Ground: barren slate with hard blue slate slabs which imbue the wines with a distinctive taste with high levels of minerality, frequently exuding blackcurrant aromas. The steep south/south-west facing slopes include gradients of up to 50%.
