Schmidt Winery – Winemaking History Since 1753
Surrounded by the unmatchable landscapes and breathtaking views, Schmidt Winery is located in a beautiful town of Obermoschel in Mosel, Germany. The estate cultivates its grapes on different soils throughout the region giving unique aromas and flavors to their wines. The viticultural story of the Schmidt Family dates back to 1753.
Following in the footsteps of their forefathers and preserving their legacy, the seventh and eighth-generation manage Schmidt Winery. Under the ownership of Andreas Schmidt and Tatjana Welsch-Schmidt, and their sons, Sebastian and Florian Schmidt, the estate has become a pioneer in both national and international wine distribution.
Hand-Picked Grapes from 45-Year-old Vines
Grown in fertile and mineral-based terroir, the vines of Schmidt boast a wide variety of unique characteristics and varietals. They grow Riesling, Grauburgunder, and Wießburgunder, Gewürztraminer, Silvaner, and Spätburgunder. These berries are handpicked from their 45 years old grape plants. The climate in the Mosel is considered cool, thus a long growing season is needed to get fully ripen. The result creates excellent wines with minerality, blue slate, fresh citrus, and peach tones. Schmidt Winery produces the entire spectrum of wine styles with mouth-watering whites, reds, and rosé wines, along with sophisticated sparkling and dessert wines.
Renovations in the Cellar to Enhance the Quality of Wines
Over the years, the wine cellar at Schmidt Winery has been repeatedly renovated to enhance the quality of wines. Using bottled fermentation techniques, they have given their sparkling wines a unique and traditional appeal. Their red and white wines are stored in wooden barrels and tanks for effective aging and fining.
