German industrial and wine lover invests in the Von Schleinitz Estate

In 2012 Bruno Reufels invested into the Von Schleinitz Estate to help increase its production and expand the grape varieties. The winery was able to purchase high quality machinery and enlarge the wine cellar. This was especially necessary for the red wine production, but also allowed new varieties like Pinot Gris and Regent to be introduced in 2014.

Konrad Hähn Takes Over The Winery

Before working in the winery, Konrad Hähn had gone through internships in estates in Germany and France and received his Master in oenology in 1981.

Expanding the Winery

Karlheinz Hähn, Konrad Hähn's father and grandson of Peter Hähn, the founder, expanded the winery by buying the Freiherr von Schleinitz estate and merged the two keeping the von Schleinitz name.
Being an excellent negociant, he was able to increase the business trades and developed his vineyards at the same time. Focusing on his own production and quality the negociant part of the business was reduced and eventually eliminated as the estate grew and became recognized for quality.
