The Spiess family winery is our newest addition to our ever-growing lineup of German wines. The Spiess family began farming in Bechtheim in 1509, until a generation ago. The family originally focused on livestock until Jürgen and his wife, Ute, decided to dapple in grape growing. Not long after, they realized the grapes deserved their full attention. Today their sons, Johannes and Christian, oversee the family’s 32 ha of vines and the winery where they follow minimal intervention winemaking. The many years of farming taught the Spiess’ to have the utmost respect for: family, nature and hard work.

When you can see the exact vineyard on a map of where the grapes come from of the wine you’re drinking, you know you’re in for a treat! .The Geyersberg vineyard is amongst the top of the Rheinhessen. We warn you not to shy away from the slightly sweeter spatlese style. Offering up wild complexity, it reminds us of honeysuckle, pear, baked apple, and juicy apricot. Feel free to tuck this one away for 10+ years or drink it alongside veal tenderloin and chimichurri.
