This wine was introduced in 2019 as a throwback blend of all the different parcels of the estate, made in a light, barely off-dry style that is extremely drinkable and versatile.

While the style and price point of this new edition are decidedly old school, the packaging and the inspiration for Maximin are thoroughly modern, reflecting the vision of the very talented Maximin Von Schubert. This is wine that is equally at home on it’s own as aperitif or paired with a whole range of non-traditional (in German terms) dishes such as sushi, Southern Barbeque and spicy, Southeastern Asian street food.

They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks…but whoever coined that adage clearly never met the wizards at Maximin Grunhaus.

The viticultural history at this famed Ruwer estate is old — we mean really, really, really old. By the time of Emperor Otto (successor of Charlemagne), their status as a winery had been documented. But even the von Schubert family was astounded when archaeologists discovered their building foundations were originally laid as part of a Roman road. This, coupled with Roman pruning shears and amphorae dug up in the vineyards, brings their wine history back another 500 years!!

Down in their ancient cellar, wines ferment spontaneously with only ambient yeast — a rarity in Germany these days. These native yeast strains are key: Maximin von Schubert attributes the wines’ singular flavor profile and incredible quality at least in part to the flavors they help develop.
