Domdechant Werner

In 1780, the father of Dr. Franz Werner, the renowned Domdechant (dean) of the Mainz Cathedral, purchased the Hochheim estate from Count York. Domdechant Werner is credited with having saved the war-torn cathedral from being completely demolished during the French Revolution and was responsible for its reconstruction. Today, the historical estate is owned by Dr. Franz Werner Michel, the seventh generation of the founding family. The eighth generation, daugher Catharina (Mauritz), has also become involved in the estate’s management. Worldwide, the first documented mention of Riesling dates from 1435, with reference to a vineyard in Hochheim. The grape brings forth wines of extraordinary quality here, thanks to ideal growing conditions. Elegant fruit and lasting mineral tones stamp the character of the wines. The estate’s specialties are VDP.GROSSE GEWÄCHSE and lusciously sweet Riesling Auslese wines that are particularly prized in export markets.
