GET TO BUSINESS WITH EASE
Nature does not always play into our cards and follows its own rules. What is left for us?
Keep a cool head and make the most of it. That is my motto in the often turbulent everyday life of winemakers.
That is all I need to make this precious commodity - my wines. Every year is fascinating and different. That makes living and working with wine exciting and diverse. And this brings fun and enjoyment.
In Bechtheim, Rheinhessen, we are dealing with a calcareous loess-loam soil that is so old that it is almost beyond our imagination. We are talking about two million year old deposits that make our soil extremely rich in nutrients and offer very good water storage capacity. This is ideal for the rooting of our vines. These roots reach soil layers in a depth of up to 20 meters.
Within two million years, there was a lot of time to collect the power, which the soil transfers to our precious vines. This results in the production of wines with fine fruit, impressive structure, complexity and delicate elegance.
Just like the vines, I am also rooted in my homeland. I love this region, the climate, the people, the family and the rural togetherness.
On the estate only German is spoken.
