The winery is located in the community of Rüdesheim in the German Rheingau wine growing region. The family has been growing wine since 1744, but did not specialise in it until the 1950s. After completing his training in Geisenheim, his grandson Johannes Leitz vinified his first wine in 1985. Subsequently, there was a considerable expansion of the vineyards. The vineyards cover 40 hectares, 36 of them in Rüdesheim and 4 in Geisenheim. The most important individual sites are Berg Kaisersteinfels, Berg Roseneck, Berg Rottland, Berg Schlossberg,Bischofsberg, Drachenstein, Kirchenpfad, Klosterlay and Magdalenenkreuz (all Rüdesheim). They are exclusively planted with Riesling. Great attention is paid to low yields and late harvesting in order to produce wines with an individual soil character using the highest quality grape material. The fermentation is carried out with both natural and pure yeasts. The dry top wines mature in traditional large wooden barrels, the wines in stainless steel tanks. The wines age for a long time on the and are bottled relatively late. The winery is a member of the VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter).
