The Ernst Bretz- family owned winery with rich traditions

The Ernst Bretz is a family winery, based in the heart of Rheinhessen, running since 1721 and is now managed by the 9th and 10th generation of the family. The staff respects their rich traditions and aims to work hard to make their products better every day. To maintain the high standard of their wines, they combine manual work with modern machines and technology. All the work ranging from vineyards, fermentation to the bottling of wines is done by themselves, and they don’t buy any grapes from outside.

Their single-vineyard wines have received many prestigious awards and honors all over the world.

Visit to enjoy magnificent views of the Taunus or Donnersberg

Most of their vineyards are present on the slopes of Petersberg from where one can enjoy magnificent views of the Taunus or Donnersberg. The vines are planted here in multiple small plots that create a unique microclimate that make the region suitable for the growth and cultivation of grapes. The soil is clayey and has a lot of minerals. The workers try to protect nature and their land and vines so that the produce is high-quality that helps in making wines with great minerality and structure.

wines from gifted Rheinhessen terrain

The main grape varieties they grow include Riesling, Spätburgunder, Grauer Burgunder, Weißer Burgunder, Sauvignon blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay. The workers manually pick the best grapes and use them to make their famous red, white, rose, sparkling, and dessert wines. Fermentation in steel tanks with ageing in wood barrels gives the wines an intense flavor and taste that is typical of the gifted Rheinhessen terrain.
