Scherner-Kleinhanß winery: in the heart of Rheinhessen
Scherner-Kleinhanß is a family-owned enterprise located in Rheinhessen, Germany, with its vineyards perched on the finest wine regions of Flörsheim-Dalsheim. Protected by the highest peak of Donnerberg, the vineyards relish a perfect soil and microclimate for the production of vines. Rheinhessen is one of the warmest and driest regions of Germany where tourists from all over the world come and enjoy wines.
The birth of a winery due to a marriage
In 1726, a blissful tale began when a carpenter named Joseph Jodokus Scherner from Bayreuth moved in Dalheim. He established Scherner winery with a barn and a wine cellar and started the family winemaking tradition. In 1954, a connection with another winemaking family, known as Kleinhanß, was made through a wedding. A new story was then started, and the winery got its original name – Weingut Scherner- Kleinhanß. Today, Klaus R. Scherner owns the winery and is successfully running the winemaking business in its ninth generation.

On 12.5 hectares of land, Klaus cultivates a vast range of traditional grapes in a nature-oriented way. These grapes include fruity Riesling, Weißburgunder, Grauburgunder, and Rivaner, along with aromatic Spätburgunder, Sauvignon Blanc, Muskat-Ottonel, Bacchus, and Dornfeld. Klaus has a broad knowledge of wine production and viticulture as he worked for four years in Canada as a cellar master. Preserving the traditional methods, he believes in manual picking of grapes to collect the best bunches.
