Wine Guide

Grunhauser Herrenberg Kabinett


Documents of the Benedictine Abbey of St. Maximin of Trier state that Riesling has been grown on the Maximin Grünhaus site since at least the year 966, although the discovery of Roman winemaking artifacts on the site suggest that wine was produced at the site since the 2nd century.  The wines of Maximin Grünhaus have been both historic and modern reference points for German Riesling, owing to the unique quality of their vineyard site, and the fact that over the centuries it has benefited not only from being well-situated, but has had a succession of obsessive, quality-focused owners.  In continuous operation for over a thousand years, the Maximin Grünhaus estate has been overseen since the early 1980’s by Dr. Carl von Schubert, whose uncompromisingly high standards have upheld the reputation of the winery as one of the world’s best producers of Riesling. 

Wines from this site were made specially for the Abbey’s choirmasters. Extending over 40 acres, the site benefits from deep soils with good water retention, over a base of red Devonian slate. Wines from the Herrenberg show fruit and body early in their lives, but also possess extraordinary ageing potential.
