Originating in Germany in the 1400s, Riesling is hailed the world over as one of the premier white grape varieties, and it is the 2nd most-planted white grape in Austria.

First documented in 1289, the Schütt vineyard’s Gneiss soils impart a focused minerality to the wine. The sublime marriage of the Schütt terroir and Emmerich’s expert hand in the cellar have garnered this Riesling the Vinea Wachau’s “Smaragd” designation, an honor bestowed upon only the finest wines of the region.
