Maximin Grünhaus has a history of viticulture dating from the Roman times. It takes its name from the Abbey of Saint Maximin, a Benedictine monastery which owned the land from the 7th to 18th century. Since late 19th century, the estate is now overseen by Carl von Schubert, who represents the fifth generation taking care of the vineyards. The classically Germanic labels of this great estate have always excited us, promising and delivering stunning Mosel Rieslings.
Located on steep, south-facing slopes 2 km from where the Ruwer river meets the Mosel is situated the estate of Maximin Grünhaus. Fruit for the Maximin does not come from the estate’s monopole vineyards, but is sourced from several vineyard parcels in the Ruwer and Mosel valleys that were recently acquired by the von Schubert family. In the vineyard, the estate is mindful to work hand in hand with nature. This includes a program of wild herbs planted as cover crops and intensive canopy management to ensure the optimal health and ripeness of our grapes.
