Rainer Schnaitmann has been producing wines since 1997 under his own label. His influences stem from strong training at the renowned Geisenheim school, and vineyard work in New Zealand and Alto Adige - and what a marvel he’s made of the Lemberger (Blaufränkisch)! He’s based in the village of Fellbach, in the lesser known wine region of Württemberg near the major industrial city of Stuttgart.
The ‘Steinwiege’ wines exhibit their terroir and grape variety, with great definition and purity. His most famous vineyard is the Fellbacher Lämmler, the top wines are designated ‘Fellbacher Lämmler’, where almond trees were formerly planted. His winemaking is fully biological, although Rainer hasn’t shown an interest in organic certification.
Organic & Biodynamic Wines
With minimal intervention and low sulphur – the cornerstones of any good organic winemaker – critics argue you can actually taste this living environment, the wine’s ‘terroir’. Biodynamic winemaking goes beyond organics, it's a holistic approach to farming. Following the biodynamic calendar vineyard tasks will only occur on stated days and only natural products will be used.
