The Winery

Maximin Grünhaus

It appears that the Grünhaus estate was densely settled even in Roman times. Roman flat bricks in the foundations of the manor house, pottery remains, and roof and wall tiles suggest that a ‘Villa Rustica' once stood on the site of the present Schloss. There is evidence that wine was produced on the estate in Roman times: discoveries include the remains of a pottery, which produced amphorae for storing wine, along with Roman grape harvester's knives.

4 /5

Until the end of the 18th century Maximin Grünhaus was managed by the Abbey of St. Maximin. In 1882 Carl Ferdinand Freiherr von Stumm-Halberg bought the estate with vineyards, agriculture, viticulture and buildings. With a wealth of investment, he built the business into one of the most modern of its time. Quickly, the local vineyard gained worldwide fame under the formerly unified name Herrenberg. However, since significant differences in the soil occur within this slope, the situation in Herrenberg, Bruderberg and Abtsberg was divided, the latter provides the finest wines of the Ruwer. This today from Dr. Gut von Schubert, run by the fifth generation, is one of the most respected icons of German viticulture.
