The four-tier quality pyramid STEITZ | GUTSWEIN | ORTSWEIN | LAGENWEIN of our wine range follows the guidelines of the VDP (Association of German Prädikat Wine Estates), which at the same time is the basis of the association MAXIME HERKUNFT RHEINHESSEN, which we are a member of.
The wine to get a first understanding of our wine philosophy.
These two blends with our heraldic animal, the lion, on the label guarantee modern pleasure. STEITZ WEISS offers fruity-mineral delight. STEITZ ROSÉ provides dry balanced fun in the glass. The ROARR SECCOs offer sparkling pleasure also in WHITE and ROSÉ.
The Gutswein is the calling card of every wine estate.
Whether Riesling, Pinot varieties or Sauvignon Blanc: Our varietal Gutswein with precise varietal character reflects its origin of porphyry and andesite soils and offers authentic Steitz enjoyment.
Our Ortsweine are defined by their origin. Whether from Neu-Bamberg or Stein-Bockenheim, these wines lace the corset of provenance tighter than with Gutswein, with lower yields and manual harvesting.
Spontaneously fermented in large oak barrels with an individual maceration and time on the fine lees, they offer vibrant, terroir-driven enjoyment with a character clearly marked by origin.
Our Lagenweine are of superior quality and at the top of the pyramid: The single vineyard sites Heerkretz, Eichelberg and Sonnenberg yield these premium wines made from Riesling, Spätburgunder and Chardonnay.
The individual soil and microclimate in the respective vineyard create the special terroir that allows the wines to become individual artefacts that express their provenance.
Further maturation in the bottle allows them to show their full potential after 3 to 4 years.
