The name Nussbrunnen originates from a well formerly surrounded by nut trees, implying that this vineyard site, which is considered one of the very best in the region, has a good water supply. The highly-regarded site sits on a hillside with southern exposures in the village of Hattenheim at the east entrance above the railroad tracks. It contains deep, sandy-loam soils which yield wines of great depth, complexity, and age-worthiness.
Balanced and integrated, this offers peach, nectarine, spice and mineral aromas and flavors matched to a firm, succulent profile.
Fun Fact: Dating back to 1464, this is the oldest continuously operated family business in the world!
The Barons Langwerth von Simmern history in the Rheingau dates back to 1464. In 1472, the family acquired the historic Hattenheim castle in the Rheingau and in 1711 they moved to Eltville, the cultural center of the Rheingau. The estate is now run by the Baron George and his wife Baroness Andrea Langwerth von Simmern. They utilize century-long traditions in the production of top-quality wines from their world-famous vineyards - 95% of their vinyards are "Grands Cru" vineyard sites. While preserving tradition, the estate has adopted new innovations in quality-oriented vineyard and cellar practices. The Baron's passion ensures that the estate will remain one of the Rheingau's oldest, largest and top-rated wine estates for centuries to come.
