A new generation of wine makers have elevated German wines to an entire new level. And it’s not only the Riesling! Here are some of the best-kept secrets.

Brueder Eser
Honest wines, expertly crafted by two brothers, the next generation: “Brueder Eser” is a new line of wines within the traditional vineyard Eser, known for Riesling and Pinot Noir. Great value for the money …


Aged vines, a lime­stone terroir and the slightly cooler climate on the Rhine ­valley plateau form the wines from Weingut Neiss, which is run in the 6th generation. “That’s Neiss” (don’t miss the pun) are wonderfully drinkable blends that come in white, red and rosé.


This winery is a shooting star in the Region Mittelrhein which is the nor­th­ernmost wine­growing area of the ­Rhine Valley. Their silky dry Pinot Noir has beguil­ing tastes of cherry and ­berries.
