Our traditional focus is Riesling – and on producing top-quality vintages. Riesling not only enjoys a long tradition in the Middle Rhine Valley; it also benefits from the excellent conditions provided by the region’s steep slopes. Outstanding Riesling wines and fine Burgundies thrive on the classic slate soil in the side valley of Steeg and in the vineyards around Bacharach. Our family has also been making sparkling wine with great enthusiasm since 1987.
Our philosophy is to work with nature as closely as possible when growing our wines. Gentle cultivation of our vineyards, vigilant care of our vines and very modest implementation of the necessary phytosanitary measures are the foundations upon which our day-to-day work outdoors is based. Specifically working with and in the midst of our natural surroundings shapes the course of the year. In particular, we have consciously decided to reduce our yields in order to produce a high-quality product. The terroir, low yields per hectare and a form of cultivation that is as close to nature as possible result in expressive wines and sparkling wines.
Thanks to the modern wine production technology in use at the winery, what nature yields with a little gentle human help and an eye to quality in the vineyards is turned into wines full of character with great ageing potential. We are not only pleased to present you with the year’s current wines but also with a treasure trove packed with bottles of great vintage.
