The quality of the Wines starts in the vineyard – this is our conviction. This conviction is based on the long experience of our family in the vine refinement business. The selection of the grape varietals, according to the conditions of nature, is essential for the development of the grapes.
Winemaking is our life. Our best finish for a year is – if our work is rewarded by the creation of a new icewine. Each vintage has great challenges for us for every day, which we answer with love and dedication. You can smell and taste this dedication in our wines. Discover the variety of the flavours during a tasting in our vinery. You are welcome!
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.
Almost exclusively used in the production of Champagne, Pinot Meunier is a late budding and early ripening red variety that was once planted extensively throughout northern France. When blended into Champagne’s eponymous sparkling wine, Pinot Meunier adds lively fruit. Chardonnay adds brightness and Pinot Noir is appreciated for structure and weight. Pinot Meunier has acidity levels higher than in Pinot Noir, making it a prized choice for Champagne growers. It thrives in cool north-facing vineyards and is able to withstand damp or frost-prone valleys. Somm Secret—Not surprisingly, it does well in Germany where it goes by Müllerrebe or confusingly, Schwarzriesling.
