Künstler

The wine-growing tradition of the Künstler family can be traced back to Unter-Tannowitz in Southern Moravia (Czech Republic) in 1648. After the Second World War, the head of the family, Frank Künstler, laid the foundation for a new start in Hochheim. Hochheim is one of the few Rheingau wine villages on the banks of the Main River. Favorable exposure as well as the tempering influence of the river and the light reflected from its surface all guarantee unique vineyard sites. We are particularly proud that we have also owned parcels in renowned sites in Rüdesheim since 2011. The estate comprises 42 hectares (104 acres) and 85% of the vineyards qualify for VDP.GROSSES GEWÄCHS status. Strict criteria with regard to pruning, selective harvesting, and vinification in the cellar ensure the production of exceptional wines. Yet, it is Gunter Künstler’s ambition, which is behind all effort he invests in these unique sites, that gives rise to wines of internationally recognized quality.
