About Us

We are

Producer of great wines since 1900

Controlled low harvest quantities, a strict selection of the grapes (all grapes are harvested and sorted by hand) as well as a particularly gentle grape processing without mechanical stress guarantee the highest quality.

The farm

The focus of the meticulous work in the vineyard and cellar is to bring out the typicality of each individual vineyard.

 

The external economy is oriented towards natural viticulture, which includes the most environmentally friendly viticulture possible by not using fertilisers or herbicides and insecticides.

 

The targeted acquisition of old Riesling parcels with genuine roots was also part of the farm's quality concept.

 

In the cellar management, we consequently renounce any addition of treatment agents such as yeasts and fining agents, as well as acid additives or deacidification limes. Also, no animal proteins are used. All wines, without exception, are fermented spontaneously in large wood or steel.

 

The results are independent wines full of character and extremely storable, which can only be described as individualists.

Great winemaking needs love and attention.

SAMMIE STEINMETZ

They should reflect the location, the soil, the microclimate and the characteristics of the vines, i.e. all the peculiarities of the environment in which they are grown - and this while incorporating my personality as a winemaker.

STEFAN STEINMETZ
The aim of my efforts is, to create wines that are a "fingerprint" of everything that makes up the character of a great vineyard.
