Schloss Janson Winery – A Perfect Place to Learn Palatinate Wine Culture

Weingut Schloss Janson is situated in the municipality of Bockenheim in an ideal wine-growing region, Palatinate. The winery is surrounded by ancient walls, adding unique charms to the estate. There are a well-furnished courtyard and a small, beautiful wine shop within the main building dedicated to wine tasting activities. The annual production of the estate is around 220,000 wine bottles.

Hardwork and Passion of Six Generations

The origin of Weingut Schloss Janson traces back to the 12th century. Later in the 1500s, Count Emich XI of Leiningen converted the rustic castle into a small palace. Finally, in 1831, Heinrich Janson took over the estate and started growing grapes. One of the buildings of the palace is later converted into a wine cellar. Since the early 1980s, the palace has been operated as a pure winery. Today, Kurt and Annesuse Janson run Weingut Schloss Janson, along with their children, Sarah and Kurt. Together, they produce top-class red, white, rose, and sparkling wines.

Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Viticulture Practices

The estate owns 50 hectares of vineyards located in individual plots, including Burggarten, Mandelpfad (Dirmstein), and Klosterschaffnerei (Bockenheim). These parcels are planted with high-quality whites Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Scheurebe, together with Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, and Müller-Thurgau. Their red varieties include Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines crafted are stored in stainless steel tanks and large wooden barrels for aging and refining.
