Rudi Rüttger
Wine Estate | Neuleiningen | Pfalz



Our focus is on the grape varieties Riesling, Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris) and Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc).
For the Riesling, we distinguish 3 qualities.
The top is made only in particularly good years: Riesling Réserve and is characterized by a complex, dense taste.

The Pinots grow mainly on limestone, which leads to high minerality and full-bodied wines.

Also newer grape varieties, in particular Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, take place in our sites, they impress with their fragrance and their very own character - the Leiningerland is good for them.

We offer a wide range:
the aromatic varieties Gewürztraminer, Bacchus and Scheurebe have been an important part of our range for a long time and still are.


About 40% of our vineyards are planted with red varieties.

All red wines are fermented on the mash, enjoying a rather long maceration, and pass through a natural malolactic fermentation.
Spätburgunder, St. Laurent, Schwarzriesling and Dornfelder grow here for a long time,
They are our most typical red wine varieties.

Challenging, complex wines from our best grapes experience a long mash fermentation, combined with a longer (barrique) barrel bearing.
Here, in particular, the cuvées stand out: Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot, and Sarastro. Of Portugieser- and Trollinger-Grapes we produce our fresh and crisp rosé wines.
