Von Winning produces some of the finest dry wines in the Pfalz, if not all of Germany. Each wine, from an entry-level Riesling to the heralded Grosses Gewachs, is a microcosm of the Pfalz’s unique mineral profile, and of the fastidious winemaking at the estate.

Although the domaine was established in the 1860s, its fortunes rose in 2007 when Stephan Attman was appointed head winemaker. Stephan chose to abandon the stainless steel fermentation typically favored for Riesling and return to the old way of fermenting in wood, a practice that encourages structure and complexity.

V-W has vines in some of the most revered terroir in the Pfalz, including 8 different GG sites—no where else can you taste Riesling grown on such a diverse set of terroirs, including limestone, sandstone and volcanic basalt.

They are all fermented in large (typically old) oak barrels. The fermentation is long and slow, and the wines are aged on their lees for 1.5-2 years, producing a fascinating texture, simultaneously rich and ethereally fleeting.

The GGs of von Winning have virtually unlimited aging potential; there is a perfect balance struck between acidity, minerality and concentrated fruit.

Jesuitengarten

Jesuitengarten is located on the outskirt of Forst directly in the neighborhood of four other prime vineyards: Kirchsenstuck, Ungeheuer, & Pechstein. Due to its high mineral content, optimal available water capacity, and diverse soils of calcareous and clay, sandy loam with limestone rubble, and in some places a high concentration of weathered basalt or humus, this is considered one of the very best vineyards in the Pfalz. The basalt components help warm the east facing site quickly in the morning sun. A west to east breeze cools and dries the grapes in the evening and helps to ensure that even highly ripe grapes remain healthy. The vineyard slopes at 4 to 7 percent and spreads between 100 and 145 metres a.s.l. Exclusively Riesling grows here. History: The site was placed in the second highest category in the Bavarian vineyard classification of 1828. The Jesuit Monastery of Neustadt and der Weinstraße was the former owner of the site, which is the origin of its name.
