    As one of Germany's oldest wineries, the history of this iconic estate dates back to 966, when wines were mainly made for the nearby Monastery. Fast forward to now, Carl von Schubert and his son Maximin are leading the estate in the fifth and sixth generation today, carefully managing three of the most highly regarded Grand Cru vineyards in the region: Abtsberg, Bruderberg and Herrenberg.

Press Review

    Grünhaus Herrenberg Riesling (GG) 6pk 2016

    Still rather closed in the nose this is totally distinctive and very delicate wine with a lot of herbal and berry nuances with seriously underplayed power. Very pure long finish. Drink through 2040.

    Grünhaus Herrenberg Riesling (GG) 6pk 2016

    Crab apple, white currant and lime combine for a penetratingly, prickling pungent nose and a tart-edged, tingling, crunchy, piquant palate impression. The feel is firm, and at 11.7% alcohol this manages a welcome sense of buoyancy. Impingements of smoke, stone, cress and nettle further enhance the wine’s invigorating, almost vibratory cast for a formidable finish. There is a certain severity here that will probably diminish with time in the bottle, and this impressive bottling appears to have energy to spare for the long haul. Here is one of the numerous Grünhaus 2016s decisively superior to their 2015 counterparts.
