The winegrowers

A double act of concentrated skills − that’s the modern−day Römerhof winery in Riol.
Apart from master winegrower Franz-Peter Schmitz, who has successfully and uncompromisingly pushed the winery forward as a modern business since the 1970s, his son and junior winegrower, Daniel Schmitz, is now also adding new blood to the winegrowing establishment.
Young, motivated and ambitious, with qualifications in oenology and winegrowing from Geisenheim, as well as international experience at wineries in Chile, Argentina and Austria,
he demonstrates the same passion as his father, with whom he successfully perpetuates his family’s winegrowing tradition.
