Vinography Images: River of Riesling

The Danube river flows serenely by the town of Weissenkirchen seen in the distance from the vantage point offered by the steep terraced slopes of Ried Klaus farmed by Weingut Josef Jamek. First mentioned historically in 1437, this incredibly steep vineyard has a 44% slope and requires a ridiculous amount of hand work each year, sometimes exceeding 20,000 hours in the vintage. That hard work makes for some truly wonderful Riesling, however—some of the best to be found in Austria’s Wachau wine region.
