Winery Störzel: wine tradition goes back to the 17th century
The history of winery Störzel is very old. Its name was first mentioned in the archives of the city of Rüdesheim am Rhein in 1647 and ever since it has been linked with the viticulture and Rhine culture. At present, the winery is run by the family of Adolf Störzel. After finishing his apprenticeship as a winegrower, Adolf Störzel initially expanded the few vineyards into a 10-hectare wine growing business. His son Benedikt completed his studies in viticulture and oenology and then proceeded with the work in the winery.
