The winery is located in the municipality of Obersulm-Willsbach (Württembergisch-Unterland area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. The family has been cultivating wine for several generations. Walter Hirth started to vinify his wines himself in the early 1970s. After Helmuth Hirth took over in 2000, a company analysis was carried out with the aim of achieving a significant increase in quality. Vineyard sites, soils, microclimate, education system and production practices in vineyard and cellar were scrutinized and improved from the point of view of a restrictive quality grape production. In 2010, the Weingut Hirth GmbH was founded. For the purpose of further quality improvement, a viticultural technician was hired as field manager and a cellar master.
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
