The estate of Maximin Grunhaus is one of the great estates of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer. Carl Schubert's great great grandfather bought the estate in 1882, and it is wholly-owned by the family. The name of the estate, and its vineyards, dates back to the 6th century when Emperor Otto the First gave the estate and the vineyards to the Benedictine Monastery of St. Maximin in Trier. The Maximin Grunhauser vineyard covers around 80 acres of steep, south-facing hillside. Riesling is the only grape grown, and the site has a micro-climate which ensures good quality grapes, even in difficult years. The vineyards employ organic agricultural principles and the grapes are harvested by hand requiring between three and seven separate pickings.
