Winemaking dynamo Theresa Breuer took the reins at her family estate in Rheingau in 2004, aged 18, when her father passed away. The estate was founded in 1880 by Peter Breuer and owns some of the steepest, most prized vineyards in the Rheingau inclduing several Grand Cru. Peter's grandson Bernhard was a true ambassador for Riesling, playing an important role in restoring its respectability in world markets after the lost Liebfraumilch years.
His motto was: "I wish to produce wines that make the specific characteristics of their origin visible". Theresa has continued to build on his legacy improving and innovating and has converted their vineyards to organics.
