The winery in the municipality of Rüdesheim in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau was founded in 1880 by Bernhard Scholl and Albert Hillebrand as part of a wine shop. At the beginning of the 20th century, it was taken over by Peter Breuer and further expanded by his son Georg. Then, in the third generation, the brothers Bernhard and Heinrich Breuer took over the management. Together with Bernd Philippi (former owner of the Koehler-Ruprecht winery) and Werner Näkel (owner of the Meyer-Näkel winery), the Quinta da Carvalhosa winery was founded in 2000 in Portugal's Douro Valley. Already in 1997, together with Bernd Philippi and the South African Stephan du Toit, the wine estate Mont du Toit was founded. Bernhard Breuer, who died unexpectedly in 2004, was considered one of the most innovative German winemakers, meticulously working on the development of a dry Riesling and advocating the close link between wine and culture. In 1984, he founded the Charta Rheingau, which then merged into the VDP Rheingau in 1999. Today, the winery is managed by Theresa Breuer, assisted by the operations manager Hermann Schmoranz and cellar master Markus Lundén.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
