Our own forest with three hundred hectares lies to the north of Schloss Johannisberg. The wood from the oaks native to the area is used as a raw material to produce the wooden barrels that we use in our wine production. The natural texture of the wood, its structure and ingredients influence the character and quality of our top Riesling.
In the heart of the underground palace cellar is the famous treasury of Schloss Johannisberg – the ‘Bibliotheca Subterranea’. About 25,000 precious wines are stored in the 900-year-old abbey cellar. This cellar has ideal conditions for our valuable wines to mature over centuries. The oldest is from 1748.
