Wine Lunch at the Historic Vincenz Richter Restaurant, Weingut Vincenz Richter in Meissen with Senior Boss Gottfried Herrlich – Germany-East Tour 2016 by ombiasy WineTours
Weingut Vincenz Richter is a leading producer in Sachsen. The historic Vincenz Richter Restaurant in Meissen belongs to the Weingut Vincenz Richter. The winery and the restaurant are now owned and run by Thomas Herrlich in the 4. Generation. We had lunch at Restaurant Vincenz Richter. Thomas Herrlich’s father Gottfried joined us for part of the lunch.
Weingut Vincenz Richter
Weingut Vincenz Richter is a leading wine producer in Sachsen. The winery was founded in 1873 by Vincent Anton Richter and is now owned and run by Thomas Herrlich in the 4. Generation. The vineyard area of Weingut Vincent Richter totals 8 hectares. 90% of the production is accounted for by white grape varieties, including Riesling (50%), Müller-Thurgau, Bacchus, Kerner, Scheurebe, Traminer, Weißburgunder and Grauburgunder.
Restaurant Vincenz Richer
Since 1873, the family also owns an incredibly romantic restaurant located in the market square in Meißen. Guests dine in the cozy dining rooms surrounded by antiques dating back centuries. The extensive wine list showcases products from the family vineyard.
Fodor: Tucked away in a yellow wooden-beam house, this historic restaurant has been painstakingly maintained by the Richter family since 1873. The dining room is adorned with rare antiques, documents, and medieval weapons, as well as copper and tin tableware. Guests can savor the exquisite dishes on the Saxon-German menu while sampling the restaurant's own personally produced white wine; a bottle of the Riesling is a real pleasure. Try the delicious wild rabbit with bacon-wrapped plums, paired with a glass of Kerner Meissener Kapitelberg, and cleanse your palate between courses with an inspiring Riesling sorbet.
Thank you Gottfried for a very entertaining lunch.
