This traditional winery is located in the municipality of Gundheim (Wonnegau area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. It is run by Michael and Christine Gutzler. The vineyards cover 16 hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites Brunnenhäuschen and Morstein (Westhofen), Römerberg (Dorn-Dürkheim), Sonnenberg (Gundheim), Höllenbrand (Gundersheim), as well as the famous Liebfrauenstift church site in Worms (see also under Liebfrauenmilch). They are planted with the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Blauer Portugieser and Dornfelder, as well as the white wine varieties Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Silvaner and Sauvignon Bl anc. Dense planting results in deeper rooting and thus increased absorption of mineral nutrients. Further quality-enhancing measures include intensive vine care and a strong reduction in yields. Certified organic viticulture has been practised since the 2017 vintage.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
