The picturesque estate is located on the edge of the small wine-growing village of Hochheim. It is surrounded by vineyards and affords a wonderful view of the city of Mainz and the Rhein-Main landscape. The stylish estate manor dating from 1864 is not only home to the Michel family, but also the site of tastings and special events in the intimate setting of the family`s dining room, complete with period furnishings and historical pictures.
Hochheim is credited for the worldwide first documentation of Riesling in history some 550 years ago. All wines are aged individually in traditional wooden casks.
