The family owned wine estate Hanewald-Schwerdt was founded in 1955 in Leistadt, a small village which belongs to Bad Dürkheim in Palatinate. The success of the estate is close connected to it´s unique style of wine grown on limestone. Today two cousins Thomas Hanewald and Stephan Schwerdt have taken over the running of the family buisness. Thomas and Stephan are members of ‘Generation Riesling’ which represents the modern face of german winemaking. Their focus is on dry wines, primarily made from Riesling and Pinot Noir that express their vintage and vineyard. The entry level wines aim to show off pure varietal character, while the village wines are all hand picked from individual soil types. The single vineyard wines demonstrate the highest levels of quality that each site and variety can produce.

The wines keep constant high level and are usually the best in their respective category in the area. Weaknesses, there is little, but can occur in difficult vintages. However, this must be balanced in good years with particularly compelling assortments so that an operation can hold the status. In most cases you can blindly buy.
