Not many wine estates can boast a thousand-year history, but Maximin Grünhaus goes back even further, to Roman times; the earliest written records date back to 966, when a monastery was founded on the site. In the nineteenth century the estate was acquired by the von Schubert family, who made their fortune building railways, and has been making great wines ever since.
Carl von Schubert has now handed over control of the estate to his son Maximin (although Carl remains very much in place). Winemaker Stefan Kraml continues to produce some of the best wines in Germany from one of its very finest terroirs, a contiguous strip of the three vineyards Bruderberg, Herrenberg and Abstberg. There is something magical about them: if you have the patience to wait, they acquire a melting elegance that draws you back for more.Terms & Conditions | Refund policy
