    Winemaker Notes

    The Hofstück enjoys long hours of sunshine, from early morning until late evening, due to its exposed position, away from the shadow of the hills. As the Haardt hills are very enclosed between Ruppertsberg and Wachenheim the vineyards here are protected from the wind. The Hofstück im Reiterpfad site is therefore our warmest vineyard.

    The combination of high temperatures and the red sandstone soil gives this wine its luxurious fruitiness and opulence. The wines are consistently complex and full, lingering on the palate. Whilst young the wines delight with their youthful aromas but the wines’ truest qualities are released only after being stored for some years.

    In 1845 Prof. Dr. Ludwig Hausser and his cousin Johann Martin founded a small winery in Gimmeldingen as a hobby, and over the course of the next generation winemaking became their main profession. In 1894 Eduard Christmann married Henriette Hausser, the granddaughter of the founder. The Estate bears the name of her son Arnold, and is run in the 7th generation by Steffen Christmann.

    Devotion to soil vitality and the preservation and individuality of the terroir has lead them to practice organic agriculture, strict vineyard management, and severe yield reduction. In the cellar they employ long and gentle pressing with low pressure, clarification through natural sedimentation, and a slow, not too cool fermentation sometimes until as late as June with only one filtration. Today, A. Christmann Rieslings and Pinot Noirs are widely regarded as Pfalz's finest.

    This sunny and relatively dry region served for many years as a German tourist mecca and was associated with low cost, cheerful wines. But since the 1980s, it has gained a reputation as one of Germany’s more innovative regions, which has led to increased international demand.
