The "Weingut von Racknitz" is located in the municipality of Odernheim in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. It is the former estate of the Disibodenberg monastery. For more than 200 years, the estate and the ruins of the monastery have been owned by the von Racknitz family, with the ruins being transferred to the Scivias Foundation in 1989. Luise von Racknitz-Adams and Matthias Adams have owned the winery since 2003. The vineyards cover 15 hectares of vineyards in the single vineyards Rotenfels (Traisen), Königsfels (Schloßböckelheim), Kloster Disibodenberg almost in sole possession (Odernheim), as well as Hermannshöhle Kertz, Klamm, Kieselberg (Oberhausen) and Rosenheck (Niederhausen). They are planted with up to 60-year-old Riesling vines. The work is carried out according to the guidelines of organic viticulture. A special feature is the consistent vineyard and origin-related development, which brings out the Nahe's unique heterogeneity of soils. Fermentation is always carried out with the vineyard's own yeasts (no pure-bred yeasts). The wines are stored in steel tanks on the fine lees until bottling. Except for the noble sweet wines, all wines are marketed as quality wines psr.
