Knewitz from Appenheim is a new member of the VDP
With the Knewitz family the VDP grows on a total amount of 200 members. The members of the VDP.Rheinhessen are very pleased to welcome a new, strong member. "The Knewitz winery, with its potential, has been under observation for a long time, which is why I am very pleased that the admission has been positive. The new addition to the VDP symbolises the dynamic development of Rheinhessen " Johannes Hasselbach, Chairman of the VDP.Rheinhessen, announces the news.
The family business in Appenheim in northern Rheinhessen has been run by Tobias Knewitz since 2010. Five years later, Tobias' wife Corina and his brother Björn also joined the business. Together, they have been cultivating a 25-hectare area of vines ever since, consisting, among other things, of the VDP.GROSSE LAGE® HUNDERTGULDEN, which is located in the immediate area of the winery at Westerberg. This is a prehistoric coral reef, which is why the soil is crisscrossed by water-bearing limestone layers. The combination of cool westerly winds and the warm exposure ensure a very long vegetation period. This results in elegant and powerful Rieslings influenced by the limestone and wines with the typical "Knewitz spiciness". Added to the circle of VDP.GROSSE LAGE® is the site STEINACKER.
With their work in the vineyard and cellar, the Knewitz brothers prove that they are almost obsessed with detail, uncompromising and consistently strive for top quality with their wines. Particularly noteworthy is the fact that the brothers Knewitz in addition to the winery also continue the vine nursery of their father. This gives them the unique opportunity to produce their own seedlings under optimal conditions and adapted to the location.
