Introduction

The Princes of Hesse Dynasty is one of the oldest aristocratic families in Germany / Europe – 800 years of history. Related to the most of the Royal families on the continent (including the Queen of England, Caroline of Monaco, etc.) Donatus and his family enjoy a formidable reputation. The family owns the estate Prinz von Hessen in the Rheingau since 50 years and Donatus’ vision is 1. to grow the quality of the image to the top 10 estates in Germany 2. to gain global recognition and 3. to help re-establish German / Rheingau Riesling as one of the worlds noble grapes.

 

The estate is focusing on Riesling only. In terms of distribution Prince of Hesse (as opposed to most other German producers) is concentrating on global distribution in key markets. Roughly one third should be placed on the home front while the rest is going export.

 

The wines of Prinz von Hessen combine family history & tradition with the typical character of Riesling wines.

 

  • Prince Donatus’ – his Royal Highness – family is top nobility in Europe.
  • Prince Donatus’ vision goes top 10 and global recognition for Riesling and his estate.
