Over 200 years ago the Schmitt ancestors settled in the small village of Longuich, located along the Mosel River, and began managing vineyards and producing wine. We feel very attached to our family’s long tradition in this business.
The CEO Thomas Schmitt developed Schmitt Söhne into a worldwide operating winery.
Gerd Schmitt began selling German wines in Europe, and laid the groundwork for our biggest market in the USA.
Peter Vitalis Schmitt expanded his father’s business and distributed the wines throughout Germany.
In 1919, Hilar Schmitt, the great-grandfather of today’s owners, founded the company as a small regional winery.
