The Growers > Weingut Knewitz

Rheinhessen is a land of rolling hills, so the long, very even slope facing due south seems out of the ordinary. Which it is: forty million years ago it was a coral reef in a prehistoric sea. It is almost pure limestone, and this makes the Knewitz wines particularly rich and taut.

 

Tobias Knewitz took over the estate from his father in 2009, and together with his brother produces superbly crafted Rieslings and excellent Chardonnays, the latter well suited to the limestone soils
