250 years of tradition. The history of the winemaking in the Fleischer family dates back to a deed from 1742. In 1968 a new cellar was built outside of Mainz-Hechtsheim to bring the whole winemaking process under one roof. Since 1994 the Fleischer family also operates the “Winery of the City of Mainz” in Harxheim, adding premium vineyards and a beautiful 1725 timber-framed estate with a restaurant to the winery.
Hans W. Fleischer has been joined by son Michael and daughter Sabine to grow vines on 20ha of the best locations around the city of Mainz. The south facing slopes of the side valleys of the Rhine river provide ideal conditions for vine growing. The cool climate and the variety from heavy loess to sandy soils enable white and red grapes to ripen slowly and produce intense fruit flavours and expressive varietal aromas.
