The Gustav Adolf Schmitt winery was founded in 1618 in the famous town of Nierstein on the Rhine River.

The winery has been exporting wines for nearly 200 years, and was among those who  pioneered overseas markets such as Japan and Canada.

In addition to wines produced from holdings in the best vineyards around Nierstein, Gustav Adolf Schmitt has always offered a wide range of well known Rhine wines.

In the 1970s, the winery decided to focus solely on the demands of foreign markets, allowing it to become one of the leading German wine brands in Japan and Canada.

In 2004, Gustav Adolf Schmitt became a daughter company of Bernkastel-Kues based Moselland eG.

With access to over 100 hectares of vines in Nierstein, Moselland eG produces wines of exceptional quality for Gustav Adolf Schmitt at all price points. Modern wineries and skilled winemakers in Nierstein and Bernkastel-Kues consistently produce clean, crisp, fruit driven wines.
