The VDP vineyard Maximin Grünhaus***** is the first vineyard to market a Pinot Noir VDP Grosses Gewächs. Carl and Maximin von Schubert planted Pinot Noir vines in the Abtsberg vineyard, which is known for its Riesling, back in 2007. The Pinot Noir was produced for the first time in 2010. Last year, the VDP Mosel-Saar-Ruwer association decided that the winery's Pinot Noir can officially bear the VDP.GG designation from the 2022 vintage.
Climate change is also making itself felt on the Moselle. This is one reason why the well-known Riesling winery is focussing on red varieties. They are aware of the noticeable effects of climate change on the Moselle and its tributaries. Since the turn of the millennium, the Pinot Noir grapes on the Ruwer have ripened in such a balanced way that the finesse and delicacy of the variety is preserved.
"It was important to me that my colleagues in our small growing region could share this perspective. Pinot Noir transports the site with absolutely meticulous work, and that also applies to Grünhäuser Berg," says Maximin von Schubert about the future of his region.
