• THE GOOD WINE COMES FROM
    THE PALATINATE REGION!

    WE LIVE WHERE OTHERS SPEND THEIR HOLIDAYS.

EXCELLENT TASTE
AND JOIE DE VIVRE
SINCE 1723

Our wine estate has been in our family’s possession for eight generations, and the ninth generation is already in the starting blocks.

Since 1723, our family’s life has been centred on this wine estate. We are rewarded by a job which is more of a vocation and the most beautiful workplace in the world, where work can also become the creative realisation of desire and lifestyle.

The vineyards of our estate, with its classic red sandstone cellars, are located in the village centre of this 1200-year old wine-growing community.

Wines full of character, spanning the arch from traditional through to modern, are characterised by our region, our daily work in the vineyards and cellars and the vivacious Palatinate lifestyle.

Come and visit us, and be drawn into our world! Enjoy our 2000-year old cultural landscape formed by viticulture, as well as the people, wine and food.

THE BEST SOIL
FOR THE BEST WINES

My Image

Vines have been grown in the Palatinate region since the first century A.D. Embedded in the Forest of Odes (Odenwald) and the Haardtwald (forest), the Rhine rift valley in the Palatinate region has the mildest climate in Germany with 2000 hours of sun per year. The varying soils, predominantly featuring sand, marl, clay, loam and above all limestone, are an outstanding prerequisite for classic-traditional, but also for modern vines.

IT HAS TO TASTE GOOD!

Of course, our vineyards are located in a wide diversity of different positions. New varieties and new vineyards have been added in every generation over the almost 300 years during which our family has operated this wine estate. Much has changed and will continue to change, but one aspect prevails: wine is a source of enjoyment, and above all it has to taste good!

Precisely this combination of tradition and modern; passing on the pleasure of wine from generation to generation, is a guarantor for a spirit which will prevail. And yet it is a spirit which will be repeatedly reinvented across the generations, through the people who make the wine and those who love to drink it.

VITICULTURE IS OUR PASSION

AND WE ARE PROUD TO BE A PART OF IT!

“The foundation of our wine estate is not the vineyards, the historic wine cellars or the old wine casks. It is the people! It is the family and employees who are jointly driven by the fun and great affection to wine and to the region, who happily come to work every day in the vineyards and cellars”.
