Now in its 10th generation, the Tesch family has been making wine — primarily Riesling — in Langenlonsheim / Nahe for almost 300 years. Exceptional quality, sustainable viticulture, rigorous work in the vineyard, and manual harvest are givens for the winery.
Konigsschild Dry Riesling
To the south of the LOHRER BERG we find the calcareous limestone mixed with loess and river loam that form the KONIGSSCHILD. The roots of the old grape vines follow the seeping water as far as 15 m (50 ft) into the ground, helping to keep the soil loosely packed. The Rieslings grown here flaunt a bouquet of floral scents and a coy nature, especially in their youth. The flavors are soft, elegant, and refined. The vineyard's name likely comes from its former ownership to the Imperial Palace in Ingelheim, the winter residence of Charlemagne.
St. Remigiusberg Riesling
Directly adjacent to the Karthäuser lies one of the smallest of the single vineyards in the Nahe, ST. REMIGIUSBERG. Weathered volcanic rock and iron-rich clay are the defining characteristics for the soil here. With low yields and high extracts, these wines are not for the faint of heart. Opulent fruit in their youth often develop significantly mandarin notes with age. A structure both deep and elegant gives these rieslings an unmistakable silkiness without ever compromising their inner tension. Historically, St. Remigiusberg was associated with the Benedictine monks of Laubenheim and their Prince-Abbot of Reims, who was canonized after his death.
