Wine origin: The Klosterberg is the third "mountain location" Kiedrichs next to Kiedrich Turmberg and Kiedrich Gräfenberg. The name Klosterberg originates from the old connecting road between cloister Eberbach and Kiedrich, the cloister way, which crossed the vineyard site. The flat till profound soil of the southwest situation builds up of Devonian rock (coloured slates) and pre Devonian rocks (phyllite and gneiss) as well as gravelly loesses.
Weingut Robert Weil was founded in 1875 and is managed today by Wilhelm Weil in the fourth generation. The founder, Dr. Robert Weil, was a professor of German at the Sorbonne but was forced to leave Paris because of the pending Franco-Prussian War (1870-71). Dr. Weil purchased his first vineyards in Kiedrich, and he moved there in 1875, when he bought the estate manor from the heirs of Sir John Sutton, an English baronet.
The estate cultivates 90ha of vineyards planted with 100% Riesling. Wilhelm Weil, the great-grandson of the estate's founder, carries on the tradition of uncompromising, quality-oriented practices in the vineyards and in the cellars.
Many observers of the international wine world view wine-growing estate Robert Weil with its "château character" as a worldwide symbol of German Riesling culture.
