The Niersteiner Winegrowing Cooperative

In the Heart of Rheinhessen

Our Winegrowing Cooperative in the Land of Thousand Hills

Our winery is situated in Nierstein on Rhein,  the largest winegrowing village in Rheinhessen.

Winegrowing with Tradition

Farsighted winegrowers united here in 1930 and started to produce and distribute authentic wines.  A recipe for success that has proven its value. Our passion is to produce first class wines and special, regional varietal wines.

The pursuit of quality has led numerous award and acclaim.

The quality of our wines is the basis for our work.

We connect innovative winemaking practices with time honored techniques, always in harmony with nature.

Our Winegrowers Have a Fine Sense for Wine.

Our winegrowers have a “feeling” for wine, which creates the basis of our quality philosophy. They try to achieve the best possible result, namely wines of exceptional quality and individuality.

We feel this commitment to quality each and every day.
