    Schloss Johannisberg / Rheingau is surrounded by Vyneards. And the views over the vines are really beautiful. Wines produced in the Estate are also of fine quality. Next time I'm visiting here I would definitely make arrangements myself for a visit to their cellars.

    We have been there twice. It´s a small christmas market and it only is there for a weekend in December. Try a walled wine or a Bratwurst. Kids can "bake" Stockbrot (bread on long wooden sticks) over the open fire. There also is a small carussel. Inside of the Bretano-shed, around where it all takes place, there is a small market with local traders selling christmas stuff, wine etc.

    A special way (2km) to get to Oestrich is throught the wineyards. we were lucky as the mooon was out to give some light. Otherwise we would have got lost I think. It was fun!!! Even the way back up the hill later.....

    Johannisberg isn?t really big, and it has it?s charme with all the narrow and hilly streets. So why not go on a walk???

    Its lovely garden is a must on sunny days or evenings. enjoy the great atmosphere while tasting some good wines... I also like the old "Stube" inside, quite oldfashioned, but I like rooms like that, they have nothing changed since ages I guess... Good!

    Favorite Dish: There are some small dishes on the menu which are quite funny, like cheese with music. It means it's cheese with onions, so that the music will come later....

    All dishes are snacks that you should try while tasting the wines of the owners wineyard.

    Fine restaurant with really great views over the vineyards. I enjoyed coming here a big deal. Entrées range from €14.5 to €17.

    Riesling wines are excellent. Gutsschänke is located on the premises of Schloss Johannisberg, a estate winery whose motto is "Riesling at its best".

    Favorite thing: 900 years History of Wine.

    quotes from Schloss Johannisberg brochure:

    "Our viticultural history commences with the figure of the Emperor Charlemagne (A.D. 768-814) [...]"

    "[...] Throughout the centuries, the wines of the monastery and Schloss Johannisberg respectively, have maintained their reputation as belonging to the finest produced in Germany [...]"

    "[...] The vineyards of Schloss Johannisberg embrace an area of 86 acres, and are planted exclusively with Riesling vines. Within the spacious cellars, which measure a total length of 250 metres, with a capacity of 750,000 litres, the wines are allowed to mature in wood - as in centuries past - under the expert supervision, until ready for bottling. [...]"
