VDP: What is so special about your winery?

Stefan Winter: The vinotheque, the view, the location of the winery ¬ and of course the wines. Our vineyards are located on the outskirts of the village of Dittelsheim in southern Wonnegau, which has a warmer climate. Due to the altitude of our vineyards, with Kloppberg being the highest and coolest slope in the region, ripening always occurs here one week later than the surrounding villages. The VDP:GROSSE LAGE® vineyards LECKERBERG, GEIERSBERG and even KLOPPBERG are among the estate’s best sites. The winery itself is located at the foot of the vineyards. From here you have a broad view of Dittelsheim and large parts of Rheinhessen.

VDP: Which of your wines would you recommend to someone who does not yet know your winery – as an introduction, so to speak?

Stefan Winter: DITTELSHEIM Riesling VDP.ORTSWEIN.

VDP: Of which wine are you particularly proud?

Stefan Winter: VDP.GROSSE LAGE® KLOPPBERG Riesling. 

VDP: What is your winery philosophy?

Stefan Winter: My aim is to produce authentic wines that taste of origin in the most natural way possible. The vineyards are cultivated in an environmentally and ecological way through diligent and meticulous craftmanship. This is how we want to achieve wines with the highest individuality and quality.

VDP: For what wine style do you strive?

Stefan Winter: Authentic wines with character of origin; you should be able to taste the respective vineyard. Straightforward and typical for the vintage. Riesling is our top priority.

VDP: Of which wine are you particularly proud?

Stefan Winter: VDP.GROSSE LAGE® KLOPPBERG Riesling.

“IT IS IMPORTANT TO PRESERVE TRADITIONS AND THE OLD REGIONAL GRAPE VARIETIES.”

VDP: Why did you become a vintner?

Stefan Winter: For me there is no profession more beautiful and versatile; the possibilities are nearly infinite. The most formative time was during my apprenticeship with Klaus Keller and Uli Mell. These two people broadened my horizons and opened up perspectives for me as a winemaker. I am very grateful for that.

VDP: What are your next goals?

Stefan Winter: A new production building and cellar.

VDP: How do you combine tradition and innovation?

Stefan Winter: It is important to preserve traditions and old regional grape varieties. The respectful treatment of our vineyards and the cultivation of classic grape varieties is elementary ¬ and, in my eyes, irreplaceable. Nevertheless, we have to be innovative in order to be successful in the long term.
