single vineyard in the Mosel (Ruwer) wine-growing region; see under Maximin Grünhaus - Vineyard of the von Schubert family.

This traditional winery is located in the municipality of Mertesdorf (Ruwer area) on the outskirts of Trier on the Grüneberg in the German Moselle wine-growing region. According to a deed of donation by the Frankish king Dagobert I (608-639) from 633, it is attested that the Benedictine monastery of St. Maximin in Trier already owned buildings, vineyards and land in Mertesdorf at that time. This was then confirmed in 966 by Emperor Otto I (912-973), the successor of Charlemagne (742-814). However, a large part of the vineyard was created later. Maximin Grünhaus was farmed by the Benedictine abbey until 1802. In the course of secularisation under Napoleon (1769-1821), the farm was under French administration until 1810. In that year, after an auction, the first secular owner bought the estate, which was then acquired by the great-great-grandfather of the current owner in 1882. Since 1981, the estate has been run in the sixth family generation by Maximin von Schubert, son of Dr. Carl von Schubert. Dipl. Ing. Stefan Kraml acts as administrator and cellar master.
