"This winery was established 500 years ago as a source of income for the local hospital. It remains devoted to that cause today, and the spirit of generosity seems to make its way into this wine. It’s simply delicious, in an open-armed, warm and inviting way, delivering a fruit basket of flavors with a velvety-soft touch. The tangy acidity and lime-pith notes keep it firm and buoyant as it lasts, unabashedly sweet but not cloying." Wine and Spirits $25 --93--(02/20)

Winery Notes:
St Nikolaus-Hospital - the Cusanusstift - is the oldest estate in the Middle Mosel region, founded in 1458 by philosopher Nikolaus von Kues, the best-known ancestor of the town of Bernkastel-Kues. He became Bishop and Cardinal then founded the St Nikolaus Hospital, a social service institution that has been functioning since 1465.

The estate also operates the Vinothek, one of Europe's most beautiful tasting facilities which gathers 140 of Germany's top producers and represents a major tourist destination.

Their vineyards measure 15 hectares (37.05 acres) & cover Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Graacher Domprobst, Bernkastler
