The "J. B. Becker" winery is located in the municipality of Walluf in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. It was founded in 1893 by Jean Baptist Becker. Since 1971, it has been run by his grandson Hans-Josef Becker together with his sister Maria. Hans-Josef Becker is one of the best-known wine commissioners in Germany. The vineyards cover 13 hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites of Berg-Bildstock, Oberberg and Walkenberg in Walluf. They are 75% planted with Riesling, as well as Pinot Noir and Müller-Thurgau. Since the 2011 vintage, the vineyards have been cultivated according to the certified rules of organic viticulture. According to the company's philosophy, "nature is trusted". The wines are aged for a very long time in traditional large wooden barrels. The white wines are pressed after 12 hours of maceration, fermented spontaneously with the vineyard's own yeasts and mature for at least one year. The extremely dry Rieslings are very long-lived. At least ten vintages are always offered. All bottles have been sealed with glass corks since the 2003 vintage.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
