Tradition meets Innovation - since 150 years

In 1867 the estate was awarded for its special qualities at the World Exhibition in Paris. With the purchase of the Erben von Beulwitz estate by the current owner Herbert Weis in 1982, restructuring measures were gradually taken to allow for more efficient operation. The small, fragmented vineyards were increased from 4.4 hectares to 7.5 hectares.

Vines and let live

The quality of wine is created in the vineyard! The basis for this, in addition to location, soil and weather, is very consciously laid by the cultivation. No matter whether it is soil care, foliage work, fertilization or targeted vine protection, in all areas we try to work as close to nature as possible with the goal of harvesting healthy and fully ripe grapes.
By mulching emerging wild herbs or self-sown green manure plants in every second row of vines (the other is covered alternately after a few years with bark mulch or manure), we have been working for years without the use of chemical herbicides.
When necessary - e.g. when yield prospects are excessive - we do not hesitate to "green harvest", the cutting out of whole bunches or parts of bunches before the fall.
Finally, through targeted, late harvesting and strict separation of the grapes in several passes, we try to bring out the best possible quality of the vintage in dry weather already in the vineyard.

Finest white wines from the fresch Ruwer valley

Some of the vines of the Erben von Beulwitz estate are planted with Riesling with roots that give incredibly delicate and refined wines. Especially the fruity wines give remarkable qualities, marked by the typical acidity of the Ruwer and offering a succulent and concentrated taste image.

The vineyards such as Kaseler Nies'chen, Kaseler Kehrnagel and Eitelsbacher Marienholz have once again become renowned nets of Ruwer viticulture thanks to a constant search for quality. On an area of 8.5 hectares of vineyards, especially in the high place of Kaseler Nies'chen, priority is given to the Riesling grape variety.

In order to preserve the unique character of the wines from this premium vineyard, Herbert Weis relies not only on his many years of experience, but also on viticulture that is as close to nature as possible. The careful selection of hand-picked grapes is a basic requirement for the fine terroir of the region to be reflected in the wines. Delicate, finely fruity wines with a beautiful structure are the result of this resource-conscious approach in the vineyard and skilful vinification in the cellar.

The vineyards of the wine estate Erben von Beulwitz on the Ruwer

Typical of viticulture on the Ruwer, the focus of the collection at the Erben von Beulwitz winery is on Riesling. In addition, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir are grown in small quantities. With a lot of work, Weingut Erben von Beulwitz practices artisanal viticulture, works close to nature and does not use chemical herbicides. With careful grape selection and spontaneous, cool fermentation, Weingut Erben von Beulwitz produces wines of spicy richness and enormous aging potential.
Kaseler Nies'chen

The top vineyard Kaseler Nies'chen combines all the qualities appreciated by the Riesling diva in one optimal site: the steep, south to southwest facing slope consists of a poor Devonian slate soil with hard brown to blue slates and has a gradient of up to 60%. Here one can still find old Riesling vines with intact roots, some of which were planted over 100 years ago. These old vines produce only low yields - a maximum of 5,000 to 6,000 liters per hectare - but instead produce Ruwer-typical Rieslings with elegance and finesse, with aromas and minerality, coupled with fine fruit acidity and fantastic length. Here, 2.5 hectares are cultivated within the Kaseler Nies'chens. Here, the three plots "Im Steingarten", "Auf den Mauern" and "Im Taubenberg" once again deserve special attention.


The site 'Steiniger' is also already recorded on the historical map of the vineyards. In this parcel one finds a very high percentage of slate rock, which justifies its designation as a terroir. The wines from this terroir are characterized by their great minerality.


The vineyard 'Auf den Mauern' denotes the steepest part with a slope of up to 60%. High slate walls support the slope, allowing the vineyard to be planted and worked.


The "Taubenberg" parcel deserves special attention. Already the historical vineyard map of 1868 reflected this knowledge of the highest demands on the site.
At that time, when the land tax was regulated, the site 'Im Taubenberg' was assessed with the highest rate of 420 Silbergroschen per acre.


The vineyard site 'Eitelsbacher Marienholz', a southwestern to western slope with a gradient of about 20%, is characterized by rather deep red clay slates with clay content and thus good water storage capacity. In addition to the Riesling, our Burgundy vines also feel very comfortable here, both of which are cultivated modernly and economically with wire. The wines grown here - under the influence of the terroir - are characterized by power and youthful freshness, compact density, fine balance and elegant harmony; interesting food companions!


The vineyard "Kaseler Kehrnagel", a southwest to southeast facing slope with a gradient of up to 40%, consists mainly of brown weathered slate from the Devonian and a deep soil. The wines are very mineral due to the high percentage of slate and are characterized by class and freshness, especially in dry years, because the deeper soil has a high water capacity and always produces juicy wines, even if they are semi-dry or dry.

Modern methods joined by traditional values

Depending on the weather conditions and the degree of ripeness, the harvest of grapes that are as healthy as possible takes place after mid-October and often lasts into November. The multiple selection of grapes during the harvest is an indispensable basis for above-average wine quality over many years.
The gentle pressing of the grapes after the selective harvest is the prerequisite for special qualities, which we strive for every year. Subsequent cool spontaneous fermentation of the musts for as long as possible serves to preserve aroma and freshness - as does the gentle treatment of the wine, which is carried out with great care until bottling.
Already since 1990, the wines have been maturing in the new cellar below the vineyards directly in the hotel winery in Mertesdorf. The individual, artisanal maturation of the different sites and quality levels, both in stainless steel tanks and in wooden barrels, is used and combined in a targeted manner.
As far as the degree of ripeness, weather and condition of the grapes allow, every year an attempt is made to harvest ice wine, Beerenauslese or even Trockenbeerenauslese in the case of Riesling.
The Riesling classics, whether dry, feinherb or with natural fruit sweetness - often highly rated and awarded - are characterized by their filigree style with pronounced freshness and pleasant, delicate Ruwer acidity and distinct minerality. Citrus notes combine with the varietal Riesling aroma, along with yellow apple, black currant and red wild berries to create a distinctive bouquet.
