Schmitt Söhne Wines
Schmitt Söhne family winery
Welcome to the Homepage of the Schmitt Söhne family winery, where "wine making is, and has been our passiong for over 200 years!" What started as a small family wine farm, the Schmitt Söhne family winery has grown into one of Germany's largest wineries and exporters of fine German wines. Our company continues to be run by the Schmitt family and is currently headed by the 4th generation grandson.
Schmitt Söhne has developed a wide variety of wines from the Mosel and the Rhine River areas. One of our most successful lines of fine wines, the Blue Riesling (Schmitt Söhne Family Wine), was introduced in 1996 in a distinctive blue bottle to create a new market trend. The success of this wine has been outstanding. Never before had a German wine been presented in a blue bottle, which quickly became an icon for success of Schmitt Söhne. This variety of Schmitt Söhne Family Wine consists QbA, Kabinett, Spätlese and Auslese wines.
Our next very successful family of wines is the “Relax” brand, consisting of Relax Riesling, Relax Pink, Relax Pinot Grigio, Relax Cool Red, and two new additions, the Relax Pinot Noir and the Relax Bubbles.
The “FÜNF” label is a delightful wine developed for a generation that’s open for fun. The FÜNF Wines consist of a Riesling from Germany, a Sweet Red and Moscato, both from Italy, and a refreshing and fruity Sangria from Spain. This wine became an instant hit with the younger generation.
The “Global Roaming” selection is dedicated to wine lovers who prefer a dry wine. All wines of this category (Global Roaming Riesling, Global Roaming Chenin Blanc, Global Roaming Pinot Grigio, Global Roaming Cape Rosé, Global Roaming Pinot Noir and Global Roaming Cabernet Sauvignon) do not contain more than 9g/L residual sugar. These wines are a collection from all over the world, starting with Germany and South Africa.
And finally, our Thomas Schmitt Private Collection Estate Bottled wines are made from the finest Rieslings from the Mosel, specifically collected for our valued customers who appreciate an exquisite wine. This collection offers a QbA, Kabinett, Spätlese and Auslese, as well as a QbA-Dry and a Pinot Noir. “Extraordinary,” “classy” and “first-class” are the flattering characterizations for these wines.
During the “evolution” from a small local winery to the leader in German wine exports, Schmitt Söhne has always kept its eye on the future by looking for ways to improve and process superb mainly Riesling grapes while maintaining the highest level of quality and customer satisfaction with all our product lines.
