One of our favorite Sekt (sparkling Riesling!) every vintage. Grapefruit and lime dominate the initial nose, with an impressive creaminess on the palate.

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.
