If you're looking for the unique combination of light-heartedness and intensity with great elegance in Riesling, then you should look for the coolest places. The Mosel or Nahe region may be, but even slightly cooler, namely the Saar or Ruwer. The Weingut Maximin Grünhaus is located at the foot of a steep slope on the left bank of the Ruwer.
Riesling has been cultivated on the beautiful southern slopes of the Abtsberg, Herrenberg and Bruderberg for over 1000 years. The Abbey of Sankt Maximin selected the best pieces for the table of the abbot (Abtsberg) and the choirmasters or Chorherren (Herrenberg) and the rest went to the common friars (Bruderberg). Under Napoleon the domain came into private hands and eventually into the possession of the von Schubert family. The wines of Maximin Grünhaus enjoy a great reputation for their unparalleled finesse, refinement and purity. Even today, connoisseurs count the wines among the absolute elite in the field of Prädikat wines. In particular, the Kabinett and Spatlese of the Abtsberg are in a class of their own.
