The Winery

Emrich Schonleber

Weingut Emrich-Schönleber is a German wine producer situated in Monzingen in the western reaches of Nahe. The Schönleber family's viticultural history can be traced back to the middle of the 18th Century and their ancestors, the Emrich family. The estate was initially used for various other agricultural pursuits before 1965, when Wilhelm Schönleber and his son Werner converted the entire estate to viticulture. They expanded the vineyards to a total area of approximately 25 acres. The estate's Monzingen vineyards are situated on slopes comprised of stony soils. From 1997, Emrich-Schonleber has focused on producing a series of single-vineyard Riesling wines predominantly from its 30-acre Monzinger Frühlingsplätzchen plot and its 12-acre Monzinger Halenberg vineyard. The Frühlingsplätzchen vineyard sits atop a mixture of red slate and gravel soils on south-facing slopes.
