Johannisberg - Rheingau

The name "Johannisberg" in the Rheingau wine-growing region has several meanings, which often leads to confusion. A district of the municipality Geisenheim is called "Johannisberg". Behind it lies the famous Johannisberg Castle (picture), which belongs to the wine-growing domain of the same name. This estate also owns the historic vineyard of the same name around the castle (single vineyard) "Schloss Johannisberg" around this mountain. And last but not least, "Johannisberg" is also the name of the only area in the Rheingau wine-growing region. The G.H. von Mumm winery also has a close relationship to the Johannisberg story.
