The Löwenstein family has been making wine in Winningen since 1520. Heymann-Löwenstein was founded in 1980 by Reinhard Löwenstein and his wife Cornelia Heymann in Winningen in the Untermosel region of the Terassenmosel. Their production is 98% Riesling and 2% Spätburgunder, all 13 hectares of which are planted on very steep terraced slopes. The soil is composed of 7 different slate types created 400 million years ago when the two continental plates collided. Heymann-Löwenstein has been a member of the VDP since 1997 and is Fair & Green certified.
