Weingut Gernot Schuhmann

A committed winemaker with a touch of perfectionism

How it all started 

In 1974, Georg and Ilse Schuhmann founded their wine and farming business. In the early years, the wine was sold in barrels and in bottles. 

Since 1997, their son Gernot Schuhmann is responsible for winemaking and marketing. His focus is clearly on wine and he initiated a process of restructuring and quality improvement. 

This is what the winery stands for today 

During the restructuring, the fields were let for rent and the vine stocks were increased. Today, the size of the winery reaches 14 hectares, whereas red and white wines account for 50% each. 

„Highest wine quality through wise combination of tradition and innovation“ – that’s the company’s philosophy. And so, family Schuhmann combines the experiences from traditional winemaking with today’s modern possibilities.
 
„The foundation of top level wine quality lies in the vineyards“, Gernot Schuhmann is convinced. The winemaker with a strong leaning towards perfectionism places his emphasis on near to nature management and domestic grape varieties. Controlled integrated plant management, intense foliage treatment and thinning out are important steps towards healthy and physiologically ripe grape material. Harvest is done by hand, of course, and the grapes are processed in a quick and gentle manner.
