Schloss Schönborn

Privately owned, Schloss Schönborn has 650 years of history and experience under its belt, during which time the Schönborn family has amassed some spectacular sites. 


The family philosophy is pursuit of quality – indeed they were founder members of the Verband Deutscher Prädikats – und Qualitätsweingüter – VDP – the Association of German Quality Wine Estates. Schloss Schönborn now encompasses 50 hectares of vineyards, throughout the Rheingau, of which 91% is planted with Riesling. Average yields are kept low, resulting in wines with good concentration and real personality. People are often dismissive of German wines, regarding them as sweet. They do indeed have a certain residual sugar but this is ripeness, always balanced by fresh acidity. There is no point in denying that the current marketing path of German wines is rather beset by potholes, despite our impassioned affaire de Coeur in past generations.

When Paul Graf Von Schönborn assumed the mantle of this great succession, after the death of his father in 1998, it was indubitably a challenge, yet one to which the estate has risen. The wines of Schloss Schonbörn are extraordinarily versatile, offering diverse flavour profiles, from citrus and green apple through to the exotic; ideal for the world today, so open to the marriage of food and wine.

German Wine

Germany produces some of the world’s very finest white wines, presenting natural, grapey richness complemented by racy acidity. A really fine example sets off a roller coaster of emotion akin to a skilfully played piece of music.
