Weingut Von Winning

08 September 2017

Originally founded under the name "Deinhard" in 1849 the Winery has been under the name "von Winning" since 2009 after Achim Niederberger bought it in 2007. Von Winning is a VDP (association of German premium wineries) winery with vineyards around Ruppertsberg, Deidesheim, and Forst.

Under the hands of wine maker Stephan Attman, the wines undergo spontaneous fermentation in oak barrels and no pumps are used during transfers, as they have a gravity setup. 

Von Winning has wine on many of of the classic outstanding Vinyards in the Deidesheim/Forst area. Among them:

  • Paradiesgarten
  • Ungeheuer
  • Kalkofen
  • Langenmorgen
  • Kieselberg
  • Pechstein
  • Jesuitengarten
  • Kirchenstück
