Louis Guntrum makes some of the Rheinhessen's most delicious Riesling wines. The estate is perfectly situated to make the most of the cool climate (even by German standards). Riesling needs 100 days to ripen between blossoming and picking, and here they only get 1,800 hours of sunshine a year on average.

So to make an auslese (richly fruity, low in alcohol - 11.5%, and wonderfully moreish) is some feat. No wonder Herrenberg means 'mountain of the lord'. It's as if divine intervention had a part to play to make such a divine wine.

If you're a fan of this style, you'll see why Guntrum's is rated as one of Germany's top white wine producers.

The Producer

Louis Konstantin Guntrum is the 11th generation, Louis Guntrum, to manage the estate. With family winemaking roots going back to 1648 they offer the best of 'two worlds' harmoniously blending modern technology, where appropriate, with traditional approaches and ideas. Louis Guntrum strives to combine the origin, the grapes and the atmosphere of cellars to create an unforgettable drinking experience.

The Winemaker

The beginning of the harvest is always determined by the owner Mr Louis Konstantin Guntrum, who checks the state of the grapes concerning ripeness and healthiness. As the manager and owner of the estate, he invests in the winery to ensure the production of some of Germany's finest wines.
With 11 generations of winemaking running through his veins, it is not surprising that Louis Konstantin Guntrum is scooping up awards and accolades due to his speciality winemaking.

The Region

Situated on the banks of the Rhine river, Nierstein is a town dominated by wine growing. It forms part of the Rheinhessen region and is situated between the cities of Mainz and Worms.
The vineyards are situated on the steep hillsides along the Rhine's backs and arguably amongst the best in Germany. Vines grow well as the Rheinhessen region as a whole is protected by hills on the western border sheltering the vines an allowing the grapes to ripen fully.
