The Georg Fischer “Geyersberg” Riesling dry, which the master vinifies with careful use of wood, ensures the finest Riesling enjoyment. Georg Fischer can rightly be called an adventurer. As a photographer for renowned magazines such as GEO or Stern, he earned recognition and earned his living for many years. He was also highly successful as an advertising photographer. He collected the starting capital for his personal winery project.
Based on old documents, the viticultural tradition of the Johannishof estate can be traced back to the year 1685. A wine estate steeped in history developed out of a former mill – the millstones in the coat of arms of the Eser family are a reminder of the estate’s origins. Today, Johannishof estate is run by Johannes and Sabine Eser, the 10th generation of the founding family.
Their 20 hectares (ca. 50 acres) of consolidated vineyards are organically cultivated according to the most modern methods. The Team of Johannishof estate strives to achieve a particularly pronounced type of Riesling wine. After careful vinification, the young wines develop in stainless steel tanks and oak casks in a hillside cellar that provides optimal conditions for aging high-quality, fruit-driven wines.
