Although Schloss Eltz ceased operations back in the 1970s, the family still guards a treasure trove of several thousand bottles of Riesling from this justifiably legendary winery. On the occasion of the International Riesling Symposium, which was hosted by Schloss Reinhartshausen in the Rheingau in November 2010, Sophie Gräfin and Karl Graf zu Eltz invited guests to a memorable tasting of Schloss Eltz wines from eight decades.

Not only the noble sweet rarities impressed, but also the old, sometimes fully fermented cabinet Rieslings often showed themselves in amazing form. Today, you will look in vain for some vineyards on Rheingau labels. They had to make way for roads or housing developments. All in all, the tasting painted a picture of Rheingau Riesling that is characterised by finesse, depth and elegance, qualities that you also have to look for today in this legendary Riesling region, whose memory lies to a large extent in the cellars of Schloss Eltz.
