The Ress family is an old, established family in Hattenheim. For generations, they were butchers, and the butcher shop “Metzgerei Ress” exists to this day. In 1870, Balthasar Ress, who was a butcher himself, founded the inn “Gasthof Ress” on Hattenheim’s main street, thereby laying the cornerstone of a long tradition in the hotel and restaurant business as well as the wine estate and wine business. In the 1880s, he purchased the property of a bankrupt estate on Rheinallee 1, the site of today’s hotel and restaurant Kronenschlösschen and its predecessor, Hotel Ress, which Balthasar Ress opened in 1894. Under the management of the Ress family for nearly a century, it decisively helped shape the hospitality trade in the Rheingau. When Balthasar Ress began his career as a hotelier-restaurateur in 1870, the family also began to produce its own wines – literally, “Von Unserm” (our own) – a brand that is still used by Weingut Balthasar Ress to denote its most important house wines.

TASTING NOTES

From a single vineyard on the banks of the Rhine, this complex Riesling offers aromas of red apple, dried stone fruit and warm minerals. Concentrated and layered in the mouth, with real backbone complementing the ripeness.

Schloss Reichartshausen is a monopole – a vineyard owned in its entirety  by the Ress family. It belonged to the Cistercian monastery Kloster  Eberbach from the early twelfth century, and until the early nineteenth century was one of the monastery’s important outlying properties.
