Prince of Hesse

The winery is located on the south-eastern outskirts of Johannisberg in the German Rheingau wine region. It was purchased in 1957 by Landgrave of Hesse for the Hessian House Foundation with the then seven hectares of vineyards. Its trademark is the well-known coat of arms of the Princes and Landgraves of Hesse, the red-and-white striped lion of Heinrich I. Today, the winery is managed by Donatus Landgrave of Hesse (managing director of the Hessian House Foundation) and its director Dr. Clemens Kiefer. The greatly expanded vineyards today comprise 40 hectares of vineyards in the individual sites Klaus and Vogelsang (Johannisberg), Dachsberg, Gutenberg, Hasensprung and Jesuit Garden (Winkel), Kläuserweg (Geisenheim), and Sandgrub (Kiedrich)
