Domaine | Profile

Since founding the current domaine in 1990, our motto has been “respect”. Respect for natural constraints such as terraced wine-growing on extremely steep sites.
Respect for one traditional grape variety, which unlike any other conveys the influences of its location. Respect for a wine culture, which has united the slate, the steep sites, the river landscape, and grapes over a century-long process. Respect for the process of developing diversity in styles, weights, and tastes unimaginable in any other of the world’s wine-growing regions.

On just less than 7 hectares, Riesling is produced alongside a small amount of Pinot Blanc. Produced!?—this sounds like exact planning and market survey resulting in a predetermined product; that is, perfect boredom at best.

To prevent this, we are spokespersons of the wines we create here-representatives with an idea, a goal, and an image. Moreover, we allow for variations and peculiarities when observing our product’s development, thus leaving the character of every site, parcel, vintage, and cask intact. This means we “accept” the given raw materials and avoid the slimming of “big” vintages and fattening of “small” ones. Hence, we hold ourselves to natural wine standards and consequently stand by our more traditional Prädikatsweinen (quality-ranked wines).
