The winery "Sanitätsrat Dr. med. Hermann "is located in the municipality Ürzig (Bernkastel area) in the German wine-growing area Moselle, Viticulture has been practiced in the family for several centuries. The present winery was created in 1967 by way of the estate division of the winery Joh. Jos. Christoffel heirs, The production site was moved with the construction of a new cellar from Ürzig to Erden. The estate has been managed since 1974 by Rudi Hermann, who has been supported by his son Christian since 2000 in the vineyard and especially in the wine cellar. The vineyards cover 6.3 hectares of vineyards in the layers Herrenberg and podium (Earth), Würzgarten (Ürzig) Försterlay (Lösnich), as well as Rosenberg (Kinheim). In the vineyard great emphasis is placed on nature-loving care and selective grape harvest in several passes by hand. After a gentle press and a long fermentation process of six to 12 weeks in stainless steel tanks, the wines ripen without contact with oxygen on the lees, In appropriate years, high-grade wines are also produced. Among the top wines are the wines from the vineyards Treppchen and Würzgarten, which are made from rootless Riesling vines. The others are mostly called "Dr. Hermann Gutsriesling "markets. About 80% of the production volume is exported, mainly to the USA, Japan and Great Britain.
