Weingut Leitz

The Leitz family’s viticultural history dates back to 1744. The Rüdesheim estate was completely destroyed in the Second World War, but rebuilt by Josef Leitz, grandfather of the current owner, Johannes. He took charge of his parent’s estate and its three hectares (7.5 acres) of vines in 1985, after completing his viticultural training. Since then, the estate has grown in size to a remarkable 40 hectares (ca. 100 acres), and has become successful nationally and internationally. Its dry premium wines from the Rüdesheim sites Berg Roseneck, Berg Schlossberg, Berg Rottland, and Berg Kaisersteinfels are regarded as being some of the finest wines of Germany. All wines bear the signature of the winemaker and reflect the terroir of the Rüdesheimer Berg.
