„Former Rheinhessen Wine Queen Lisa Bunn is based in Nierstein, with 10ha of vineyards on the bank of the Rhine river in Nierstein (red clay), Dienheim (limestone and sand) and Guntersblum (loess). Lisa is the fourth generation of a family winemaking business. The winery used to be called Weingut Margarethenhof (nothing to do with the Lucases winery in Forst) until Geisenheim graduate Lisa took centre stage in 2013, having gained a year of experience in Germany, and worked on vintages at Robert Stein Winery in New South Wales and Springfontein Wine Estate in South Africa. The huge range of wines that Lisa inherited from father Georg has been reduced and dry styles are now the focus. As one would expect from one the key ambassadors of Generation Riesling, Lisa focuses on the Riesling grape, achieving strikingly varied mineral terroir expression from her different sites. The flagship wine of the estate is the Riesling from the Roter Hang – the iron-rich red clay soil of Nierstein. Look out for Lisa’s wines from top Nierstein vineyard sites Hipping, Oelberg and Orbel. Additionally, local varieties Sylvaner and Scheurebe represent fruit and freshness. Burgundy varieties, and Chardonnay also feature among the whites, while Lisa also makes good Spätburgunder, Dornfelder and St Laurent.“
