The estate is located in the municipality of Kiedrich in the German wine-growing region Rheingau and was founded in 1875 by Dr. Robert Weil (1843-1933) founded. There are also family roots in the famous winemaking dynasty of Bernkastel Prüm, With the purchase of the two wineries Nilkens and Buschmann, the villa of the noble English art patron Sir John Sutton (1820-1873) shown in the picture, which became the main house, and vineyards owned by the Count of Fürstenberg, the estate was expanded considerably. A Riesling from the vintage In 1893 from the Gräfenberg location, the winery became widely known. The selection from the Kiedricher Berg was then delivered to many imperial and royal houses in Europe. In 1900, for example, the Viennese Hofwirtschaftsamt bought 800 bottles of this wine for the Habsburg Imperial Court for a bottle price of 16 gold marks. Incidentally, in the treasury of the house the top wines of the great vintages back to that legendary selection. The 1920 vintage of the Kiedricher Gräfenberg Trockenbeerenauslese is called Zeppelin wine designated because he was on board the airship "Graf Zeppelin LZ 127" during the 1929 round-the-world trip.

the villa in Kiedrich, built by Sir John Sutton, became the ancestral home of the Robert Weil winery

In 1988 the Japanese beverage company acquired Suntory a majority stake in the estate. It is now run by the fourth generation of the family, the great-grandson Wilhelm Weil (estate director, oenologist). Clemens Schmitt and Philipp Bicking are responsible for the vineyards, Christian Engel and Fabian Kretschmer for the cellars. The vineyards cover 90 hectares in the VDP-classified Kiedricher single layers Gräfenberg, Klosterberg and (privately owned) Turmberg and others. You are 100% with the variety Riesling planted, on which the company specializes. Quality-promoting measures in the vineyard include greening, exclusively organic fertilization, Pest control with biodegradable, environmentally friendly agents, as well as complete waiver herbicides, Other quality factors are yield restriction through restrictive bleed, double thin out, early negative selection and extremely selective harvest mostly not before the beginning of November. The time-consuming harvesting often takes eight to ten weeks with several reading processes. When picking the rotten grapes, the harvest helpers sort them according to three degrees of decay.
