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.

The winery is located in the community of Bad Dürkheim-Leistadt (area Mittelhaardt/Deutsche Weinstraße) in the German wine-growing region Palatinate. The traditional family has been involved in winegrowing for several generations. The marketing of bottled wine was started in 1955. A guest house is attached. Today three generations work in the family. Rudi Hanewald and Petra Schwerdt are the plant managers, Thomas Hanewald is the cellar master, Stephan Schwerdt and Barbara Hanewald are responsible for sales, and Rudolf Schwerdt is responsible for outdoor operations.

The vineyards cover 26 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Hochbenn (Bad-Dürkheim), Paradiesgarten (Deidesheim), Reiterpfad (Ruppertsberg), as well as Herrenmorgen and Kalkofen (Leistadt). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Goldmuskateller, Müller-Thurgau,Pinot Blanc, PinotGris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Morio-Muscat, Kerner, Scheurebe, Huxelrebe and Ehrenfelser, as well as the red wine varietiesPinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Dornfelder, Regent, St. Laurent, Lemberger (), blue Portuguese, heraldic vine and acolon stocked.

The philosophy of the house is: "Riesling is destiny, great red wines a passion". The quality pyramid is divided into three lines. These are site wines (terroir-influenced wines from the best sites, red site wines according to the criteria of the Forum Pfalz with a maximum yield of 4,000 l/ha), local wines (quality wines dry and predicates with residual and noble sweetness) and estate wines (from estate vineyards and classified grape varieties). The flagship of the house is the red wine cuvée "Zweihänder" made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It also produces bottle-fermented sparkling wines, Secco (sparkling wines), grape juices and noble brandies (wine, grapes, yeast, marc, fruit). The winery is a member of the two associations Forum Pfalz and Generation Riesling.
