Just like you can't make grass grow faster by tugging on the blades, you can't improve wine by trying to make it ripen quickly. Our wines often come to market no earlier than two or even three years after harvest.
We view each wine’s maturation as a purification process. The aromas of the grapes melt away, while the aromas of the vineyard, the soil and the stone gain in prominence. Only then does our 'genius loci' — the spirit of this place, of these Rheinterassen and the slate soils of the Roter Hang — truly emerge.
Kühling-Gillot have been fully biodynamic as of 2005. All their estate wines carry the QVINTERRA® trademark which represents five different wine villages and five different soil types. The Kühling-Gillot estate owns vineyards in the five famous villages on the Rhine Terrace: Oppenheim, Nierstein, Nackenheim, Bodenheim, and Laubenheim. Qvinterra is matured in stainless steel to fully capture the essense of Riesling.
A juicy, crisp Riesling, such as only the Rhine Terrace can produce: lively acidity, fine pineapple and apricot fruits, and a gentle slate flavor combine to create a drinkable, fun wine that fits wonderfully to grilled white fish or to drink simply for the fun of it with friends.
