Once the home of some of the world’s most sought after wines, the Rheingau fell to mediocrity in the years following WWII. Johannes Leitz took over his family's vineyard in 1985 and, in the decades since, has made it his life’s work to reclaim the intrinsic quality of his native terroir. Now hailed as one of the finest producers in Germany, Johannes has grown his holdings from 2.6 hectares to over 40, gathering national and international accolades for his outstanding wines along the way, particularly his rieslings. In 2007 the ‘Eins Zwei Zero’ label of zero alcohol wine was created to offer the best quality wines possible for those who don’t want to consume alcohol but still want to enjoy a glass of wine. The wine is de-alcoholized via vacuum distillation, which removes the alcohol under extremely low pressure and temperature, thereby preserving the nuances of aroma and flavor. From Leitz's website: "It offers an original character that is clean and fresh with notes of lime and citrus; subtle hints of gooseberry and carambola [star fruit] are easy to detect. The intensity of the acidity is not to compare with the ZERO Riesling. The blend is made of very aromatic white varietals and they show with a dry finish and relatively long aftertaste." Sustainably grown, vegan.
