Rainer Schnaitmann

After his studies and some apprenticeships, Rainer Schnaitmann no longer wanted to deliver his grapes to the local cooperative. With lots of time and effort, his grandparent’s historical house was renovated, and a new focus on quality varietals was put into place. The 1997 vintage was the first under his own label. Initial success stories followed soon thereafter, particularly with Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling, all of which enhanced the young estate’s reputation. Schnaitmann is convinced that there is much untapped potential in the vineyards of the Rems Valley. The conversion to organic viticulture is finished, and it will lead in long-term stability and even more job satisfaction. Not for a second has Schnaitmann regretted his decision to opt for viticulture rather than architecture.
