The Estate

The family owned and operated estate Hanewald-Schwerdt was founded in1955 in Leistadt. Today Thomas Hanewald & Stephan Schwerdt took overthe family buisness which was established by their grandfather. The two cousins focus on Riesling and Pinot Noir. Pinot Blanc is the second most important white variety. The secret of their handcrafted wines is a unique limestone reef which dominates all the sites arround Leistadt. A hidden treasureaway off the beaten track. The vines are old and surrounded by a protectednatural resort in the shade of the Haardt mountains.

Tastng Note and Food Pairing
