As far back as 1780, the Windisch family has lived in the village of Mommenheim near Nierstein and Mainz. As well as producing wines using the Riesling grape, the Windisch vineyards also produce fine wines using: Dornfelder, Scheurebe, Mueller-Thurgau, Silvaner, Grauer-Burgunder, Weisser-Burgunder, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Portugieser and Regent.
