OUR FIRST VINTAGE OF PROJECT “WURZELWERK” AVAILABLE
Since 2016 we are part of the grape exchange project “Wurzelwerk”: during harvest the estates Jurtschitsch, Kamptal in Lower Austria, Gunderloch, Rheinhessen, and Georg Breuer provide one another with grapes from one of their top sites and start exploring the terroir: how does a vineyard express itself in a foreign cellar? What gives the tone?
The first vintage of the project “Wurzelwerk” that was developed in team with Georg Breuer is now available and can be purchased in our vinotheque as well as over the homepage of Wurzelwerk.
Further information on the project “Wurzelwerk” can be found on www.wurzelwerk.org .
RELEASE 2015 BERG SCHLOSSBERG – ARTIST LABEL BY MIKHAIL SMIRNOV
We are very delighted to announce that the artist Mikhail Smirnov signs responsible for the label of our 2015 Berg Schlossberg.
Smirnov was born in St. Petersburg in 1951 and educated at the city’s academy of arts. His work can be found in various private collections all over Europe.
Mikhail Smirnov uses the techniques of oil painting, aquarelle and mixed graphics. In his paintings – that can be assigned predominantly to the species of genre and portrait painting – he deals with mythological and philosophical subjects and deliberates on psychological and convictional matters of mankind.
For our 2015 Berg Schlossberg Smirnov created the painting “Flights in sleep” that reflects the force fields of gravitation and imagination: using the vineyards of Rüdesheim as lyrical backdrop the painting shows a sleeping figure that floats between heaven and earth, bedded in day-to-day ponderous earthiness and elevated by somnambulistic ease. Appearing mystic and excessive the scenario links law of nature and prolific soil, immense strength of imagination and drowsy creative urges … and the human being, interwoven into it all.
Ratings: Gault Millau Wein Guide Deutschland 2017: 95 points (first in the category „Riesling below 12 percent“); Eichelmann 2017 – Deutschlands Weine: 93 points; Falstaff WeinGuide 2017: 95 points; Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung: „Favorite of the Year“ in the category White Wine
JAMESSUCKLING.COM: THE TOP 25 DRY GERMAN RIESLINGS OF 2016
“… One of the producers who would have been on that list of great wines a generation ago is on this list today. I rated the 1990 Berg Schlossberg Riesling from the Georg Breuer estate in Rüdesheim/Rheingau 90-91 points when I first tasted it from cask back in the late spring of 1991. It was made by Bernhard Breuer who died in 2004. The 2015 of the same wine was made by his daughter Theresa and scores a 97 on today’s hit list. …”

RELEASE 2014 BERG SCHLOSSBERG – ARTIST LABEL KARIN MAMMA ANDERSSON
We are very delighted to annonce that the outstanding swedish artist Karin Mamma Andersson signs responsible for the label of our 2014 Berg Schlossberg.
Karin Mamma Andersson was born in Luleå in 1962 and educated at the Kungliga Konsthögskolan in Stockholm. Her artistic work has amongst others already been shown at the Venice Biennale, the MoMa in New York and the Moderna Museet in Stockholm and is represented by leading galleries worldwide.
Andersson lives and works with her family in Stockholm.
She is married to artist Jockum Nordström who developed the label for our 2004 Berg Schlossberg ten years ago.
Karin Mamma Andersson’s artistic oeuvre is characterized by its almost exclusive and therefore complex commitment to painting: the allusive settings and emotionally charged scenarios Andersson creates in her works ladle from the recourse to a wide arsenal of varying painting techniques. Andersson’s compositions appear dreamlike and at the same time rooted in daily routines.
For the label of our 2014 Berg Schlossberg the artist created a woodcut – a novelty in Andersson’s work. The technique of woodblock printing is a manual cutting resp. printing technique that Mamma Andersson has dealt with since the past year.
When she started developing the label Andersson found an antiquarian book on hunting in the 1930s while researching for another project in parallel. In that book a picture of a “german hare” stroke her eye and she immediately understood that the hare must be the motif for the Schlossberg label: in Andersson’s imagination that hare sits high upon the mountain looking down at the vineyards of Rüdesheim.
