Weingut Langwerth von Simmern

The history of the Barons Langwerth von Simmern at the Rheingau dates back to the year 1464, when Johann Langwerth von Simmern received 32 2/3 Morgen (approx. 25 acres) of "Hattenheimer Mannberg" as a reward for his services as chancellor to Duke Ludwig von Pfalz-Zweibrücken. In 1472, after the acquisiton of Castle Hattenheim, the family finally made the Rheingau their home. After buying Stockheimer Hof in 1711, the family moved to Eltville, the cultural centre of the Rheingau. At Stockheimer Hof, the mother of Baron vom Stein was born in 1721. The acquisiton of Lichtenstern Hof in 1753 laid the foundations for the current estate. The two buildings lend the modern Langwerther Hof its character and enclose the Estate Park inside. Today, they continue to take the century-long tradition of the production of top-quality wines from world-famous vineyards as both incentive and obligation to concentrate their efforts on maintaining the established standards and to introduce changes only with utmost care.

Tasting Notes

A delicate, tangy citrus wine with a touch of sherbet. The palate is quite explosive with a touch of tangerine and the finish is deliciously long and leaves you salivating.

Food Matches

Enjoy with chicken laksa with butternut squash.
