The winery "E. Schauß & Sohn" is located in the municipality of Monzingen in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. It was founded in 1800, when Johann Nicolaus Schauß married into a family of winegrowers in Monzingen. The vaulted cellar and individual parts of today's farm building date back to this time. For a long time the property was run as a mixed agricultural enterprise and as a tannery. In the 1980s, the estate was completely converted to viticulture. Today, Elmar Schauß is the seventh generation of the family to run the estate. The vineyards cover 12.5 hectares of vineyards in the locations of Frühlingsplätzchen and Halenberg (Monzingen). They are 45% planted with Riesling, as well as the varieties Dornfelder, Portugieser, Pinot Noir, Domina, Kerner, Bacchus, Pinot Blanc, Müller-Thurgau, Regent, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer. In the vineyards, special emphasis is placed on low yields and natural soil management. This includes, for example, a targeted cover crop. After manual harvesting, the grapes are pressed after four hours at the latest. The slow fermentation takes place in small, cooled tanks. Pearl wines, bottle-fermented sparkling wines and spirits (yeast brandy, grape liqueur, peach liqueur) are also produced.
