Robert König, a Winery Surrounded by Vineyards and Forests

The small family winery Robert König is present behind the idyllic Aulhausen village near Assmannshausen on the Rhine River, surrounded by vineyards and forests. The winery produces almost exclusively Pinot Noir from entry-level to high quality. Robert König established the winery and planted Pinot Noir vineyards in contrast to the rest of the region, growing Riesling predominately.

 

The Journey of the Winery

Even though winemaking has been in the family since the 17th century, Robert started full-time wine production. He made their Pinot Noir famous outside Germany in the USA, China, Europe, and Japan. Unexpectedly, Robert passed away in November 2015, and his son Philipp took over the winery. Since his father’s death, Philipp has continued their family tradition of Pinot Noir wines and studies viticulture at the Geisenheim University.

Robert König Winery has earned international recognition for its high-quality Pinot Noir wines.

 

The Vineyards and Grapes of the Winery

Their vineyards are present in some of the region’s best areas, including, Hoellenberg, Frankenthal, and Drachenstein. In Hoellenberg, the distinctive soils create a unique microclimate, and the ground stores heat during the daytime, so the grapes continue to ripen through cooler evenings. The Frankenthal vineyards are barren and rocky, adding complex minerality and depth to the wines. Drachenstein is the warmest site in the area, and the loamy soil here grows grapes with a powerful and intense aroma. Apart from Pinot Noir, they also produce small amounts of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Madeleine, and Riesling.
