As a founding member of the VDP, focus at Fitz-Ritter is on Riesling wines from the best vineyards. Their distinctive origin has been a constant factor throughout the history of the winery. The Rieslings are predominantly dry and clearly reflect the typical character of each vineyard.

 

VDP.GUTSWEIN

Regional wines, originate from an estate’s holdings within a region. They are entry-level house wines that  provide a good introduction to the VDP’s hierarchy that inherently links wine quality with origin.

Full-bodied and spicy, delicate and fine – the wines from each vineyard show great diversity. Wines with residual sweetness and noble predicate wines round off the portfolio. Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris vines thrive in limestone studded clay soil and bring full-bodied, well balanced white wines. 

VDP.ORTSWEIN / ERSTE LAGE

First-class vineyards with distinctive characteristics. They provide optimal growing conditions, as evidenced over a long period of time. They are planted with traditional varieties, as determined by each region.

The red wine varietals are predominantly planted in sandy soil. Following open mash fermentation, the wines, especially the elegant Pinot Noirs, are matured for a term of 15 to 18 months in Barrique barrels made from oak of various origins. The Fitz-Ritter winery has succesfully completed certification for EU-Organic-Wines in 2012 (DE-ÖKO-039).
