The Schönborn castle is situated in the Rheingau. Since 1349, the vineyards in the districts on the Rhine partially belong to the Counts of Schönborn.
The estate now comprises 50 hectares which are planted up to 90% with Riesling. Spätburgunder and Pinot Blanc vines can be found on the remaining area. The domain of Schönborn Castle is a founding member of the Association of Certified Wine Estates and has farmed its prized position close to nature for many years.
Even prior to crushing, the Domänenweingut Schönborn Castle tradition remains true; the wines are produced close to nature and have been vinified in the historic cellar in Hattenheim for 500 years.
To date, the Domänenweingut Schönborn Castle has only marketed home produced wines without any packaging of purchased merchandise.
