We are a family owned and managed winery with nine hectares of vineyards on superb terroir around our cozy wine village Hessigheim which is located between river Neckar, rocks and vineyards. The mild climate and the soil offer ideal conditions for quality wine from various grapes including Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, the traditional red wine grapes Lemberger (Blaufränkisch), Pinot Noir and Trollinger as well international varieties.
Our best wines grow on steep and terrassed vineyards along the river Neckar which also offer overwhelming views. We are partners of a group of wine enthusiasts investing in such vineyards in an effort to preserve the unique terrasses built by generations of wine makers. We produce there premium wines from international varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon, Syrah, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Albarino and Pinot Blanc.
It is in the vineyards where we lay ground for our wines. We take all efforts to produce healthy and ripe grapes in perfect harmony with the environment.
Great wines are based on experience and passion. And they need time to realize their full potential. Our business processes are structured to that effect. We start with hand picking of the grapes followed by a long maceration and treatment with modern high tech equipment. Depending on the type of wine we want to produce, we work with stainless steel tanks as well as new and used barrique barrels. We make our sparkling wines on the basis of the famous champaign method.
Honest and traditional wine manufacturing, that´s what you can rely on.
Wine loving people are always welcome for a tasting in our vinothek. We also offer a panoramic tasting room for up to sixty people and hotel rooms.
