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.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAfter taking hold of the family business, he has managed to raise the estate from 2.9 hectares to the 40 hectares that we see today. One of the major land acquisitions was the integration of the VDP accredited Erbsl”h winery, which brought 6 hectares of land with it. Over the years, Johannes has gained national and international recognition for his outstanding wines. Internationally, his major markets include Norway, Sweden, the UK and USA.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe growth of the winery has had a positive influence over all the ranges of the wines produced. Specifically the Rudesheim vineyards of Berg Schlossberg, Berg Rottland and Berg Kaisersteinfels have continued their tradition of being amongst the top dry wines from Germany. All of Johannes' wines carry his individual signature and show off the varied greatness of the Rudesheim terroir from which they are born.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWith all the growth Johannes has achieved he subsequently produced the new label of EINS-ZWEI-DRY. This successfull label has recently been recognized and won the ?IF Communication Design Award 2009?.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThese international successes have been a boon: however, Johannes has stayed true to his roots and homeland.
