Strub Walter

The traditional "Weingut J & H. A. Strub" is located in the municipality of Nierstein (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. It was already founded in 1710. After attending the University of Applied Sciences for Viticulture in Geisenheim and practical experience with Simi Winery in Napa Valley, California, it has been managed by Walter Strub in the 11th generation of the family since 1985. After internships with Darting Helmut (Palatinate) and Dönnhoff Hermann (Nahe), as well as studies of oenology in Geisenheim, the 12th generation is already active with son Sebastian.

The vineyards cover 14 hectares of vineyards in the Niersteiner single vineyards Hipping, Ölberg, Orbel, Pettenthal (all Roter Hang), as well as Brückchen, Findling, Paterberg and Rosenberg. They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (75%), Müller-Thurgau, Grüner Veltliner andPinot Blanc, as well as PinotNoir. With the aim of varietal typical wines, these are mainly matured in stainless steel tanks with slow fermentation. Since 1993, Riesling has been pressed whole grapes, which gives the wines more fruitiness. The wines are exported to Benelux, Japan, Canada and the USA. Since the 2005 vintage, almost all wines are equipped with STELVIN screw caps.
