Many of you may be familiar with Leitz if you’ve ever ordered it off of the Sanford winelist. You may have even ordered it by the glass since we’ve been pouring the Eins-Zwei-Dry for For-Ev-Er! We can’t help it, we love this winemaker and we are incredibly honored to have him with us on this special day.
Please join us as we welcome Johannes Leitz and his family’s mouthwatering portfolio of Riesling wines!!!
There are recorded documents linking the Leitz family winemaking history all the way back to 1744. Johannes Leitz was born much later, in 1964 in Rüdesheim. His Grandfather, Josef Leitz re-built the winery after a bombing raid on the area late during the Second World War. His father, Antonius Leitz had briefly taken ownership of the winery before his premature death in 1966. This left his wife, with her flower shop, a household and of course the family winery to run. So, it wasn’t until 1985 when Johannes took over the winery that it once again became a primary focal point of attention.
