Weingut Laubenstein is closely linked with the Nahe wine-growing region. Three wine queens, all of them active in representing the fine Nahe wine, have come from our family estate.
For more than 150 years viniculture has been carried on in this locality in the “Hochstätter Liebesbrunnen” area. Since 1860 we, the Laubenstein family, have been making wine from our grapes for four generations in Hochstätten. Otto Laubenstein, who laid the most essential foundation stone of wine-growing, imprinted his vast knowledge and experience on the business throughout the 70s and 80s. Weingut Laubenstein is today considered by its customers to be a business with an image of tradition and quality.
Today, at the beginning of the 21st century, the business is managed by Torsten A. Hashagen, an up-to-date, modern wine producer. Come and see for yourself the variety of our top quality products from the Nahe and Rheinhessen districts.
