Philipp Winery

Both generations live and work on the winery. Together we are a strong team. Reinhold Philipp's years of experience and Alexander Philipp's innovative thinking come together here.
Our philosophy relates to a considerate treatment of nature in order to create great and interesting wines from the grapes.
Our wines thrive in the charming hilly areas of Hundskopf, Homberg, Römerberg and Schloss Hammerstein around Albig. Marl rock, sand and limestone are the fertile soils on which our grapes grow and ripen, which is reflected in a variety of aromas and qualities.
Come and visit us to get to know our wines, the landscape and the people here. We look forward to your visit to our winery.

English speaking visitors are welcome.

Albiger Schloss Hammerstein

Albiger Schloss Hammerstein (Albig Hammerstein Castle)

Castle, villa, house? Hammerstein remains nebulous, its wines do not

When even name researchers are unsure and old stories from the village are mixed in this often leads to the wildest interpretations. There is talk of a castle, a fortress on the mountain. Name researchers disagree, as a castle would have been mentioned in the documents. But there is a grain of truth in it: Remains of a Roman "villa rustica" were discovered in the neighbouring "Im Sumborn" area. These ruins were probably interpreted as a medieval castle and coined the name. So much for the castle. But why the name Hammerstein? There are indications that the Imperial Counts of Hammerstein did have a say here in the early Middle Ages. Vines of all colours grow on limestone and marl on the single vineyard site, producing magnificent wines. And this is not an assumption, but a fact.

Albiger Hundskopf

Albiger Hundskopf (dog’s head of Albig)

Woof! Woof! A dog's head for vine diversity

Rumour has it that the vineyard looks like a lying dog from the west. Indeed, the hill has a peculiar shape, but not everyone recognises it as a dog shape. Whether this is the case or not, field name researchers consider this charming story to be the most plausible explanation. On the south-western slope, the vines grow on limestone and marl with a rich clay content. All grape varieties are represented, and the winegrowers even produce noble sweet wines with great storage potential here. At the highest point of the vineyard, the tower "Auf dem Fels" (engl. on the hill), a vineyard and observation tower inaugurated in 2001 can be found.
