The winery is located in the municipality of Johannisberg
(district of Geisenheim
) in the German Rheingau
wine growing region. The traditional family has been growing wine here since 1670. Today the business is managed by Michael Trenz in the 11th generation. An estate bar with Rheingau cuisine and a Mediterranean courtyard is attached. The vineyards cover 17 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Hölle
and Vogelsang (Johannisberg), Dachsberg, Gutenberg and Hasensprung
(Winkel), Magdalenenkreuz (Rüdesheim), as well as Kläuserweg
(Geisenheim). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (85%) and Pinot Blanc (12%) as well as with the red wine variety Pinot Noir (3%). The late and selectively harvested grapes are vinified after careful pressing and slow, restrained cold fermentation to produce fresh fruity, mousse-like wines. The Pinot Noir is matured 100% in large wooden barrels with long storage. A vine lease
is also offered for a Riesling or Pinot Noir vine. Around 180,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
Since 2002, the Trenz Winery has been cultivating two hectares of vineyards in Stellenbosch
, South Africa. Here, Michael Trenz vinifies a strong, spicy red wine cuveé from Shiraz, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec in barrique barrels as well as a pure, reductively developed
Sauvignon Blanc. The two wines are called "Trenz 2two".
