Our identity is the business of wine production – and it is much more. We also feel very attached to our family’s long tradition in this business. So we are always mindful of our great grandfather’s philosophy on how to choose the right grapes and produce wine of great quality.
Over 200 years ago the Schmitt ancestors settled in the small village of Longuich, located along the Mosel River in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer wine region, and began managing vineyards and producing wine. Now in the 4th generation, Schmitt Söhne is one of Germany’s largest and most successful wine exporters to wine drinkers all over the world.
While continuously developing our winemaking and looking for ways to incorporate new technologies and techniques, we never lose sight of the traditional way of producing exceptional German wines. Our policy has remained the same for over 200 years: We want to produce the best wines possible using only top-quality grapes. Today we offer the whole world a taste of great wines at affordable prices.
To ensure the best possible service and products are provided to our customers, various Quality Management Systems, like HACCP, BRC, IFS and ISO are an integral part of our production procedures and management.
At our site, still located in Longuich, we have increased production capabilities and have updated and expanded our computer network to efficiently handle all aspects of the winery, from quality control to customer service and shipments. Over the years, we have established a distribution network in several countries.
