There are numerous Esers among Rheingau producers, though only one estate bears a key in its coat-of-arms. It is that run by Joachim and Renée Eser who work 9 hectares of vineyard planted almost exclusively with Riesling and divided up into 20 sites. 53 year-old Eser makes up for the lack of grape varieties with wide range of sites. The wine list is correspondingly long as each site is vinified, matured and bottled separately. For many producers this would be far too confusing, but not for Eser. Behind his easy-going character lies a scrupulous producer who will stop at nothing in the name of quality. Low yields, no chemical insecticides and late harvesting are his principles, while in the cellar the wines are matured alternately in cask and stainless steel tanks. The resulting high quality has placed Eser among the Rheingau's élite in recent years.
