The Varieties

Worldwide, more than 8,000 different wine grapes have been identified. However, only a few are suitable for the production of high quality wines. We are proud to be able to offer you the best wines, produced from the most suitable varieties. Approximately 89% of our 50 ha of vineyards are planted to Riesling, while the classic grape varieties of Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Scheurebe, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Rieslaner complete our offer. 

Here is some information about our varieties:

Riesling:  the king of white wines. A late ripener, it’s the most cultivated grape variety in the Pfalz. It makes fruity, floral and racy wines with good ageing potential. In good vintages, Riesling produces great wines that are among the finest in the world.

Pinot Noir: Ruby-colored Pinot Noir is the grape that makes the finest of red wines, offering fine, fruit and earthy aromas and a charming bouquet. Gentle on the tongue, Pinot Noir is velvety, warm and rich.

Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc): a white mutation of the Pinot family. A pronounced, polished wine with delicate acidity.

Grauer Burgunder (Pinot Gris): a variety that can result in powerful wines with an intense bouquet.

Chardonnay: One of the best of white wine grapes, whose exquisite quality is matched only by Riesling. Chardonnay offers a powerful structure with soft, fruity aromas and an elegant minerality. 

Sauvignon Blanc: A vine whose vitality is only surpassed by that of Riesling. Typical aromas are reminiscent of gooseberries and freshly-cut grass. Racy acidity with fine structure. 

Scheurebe: Named for the man who created it, Mr Scheu, it’s a cross between Riesling and a Bouquet grape. The result is an expressive wine with a fine bouquet and fruity acidity.  When very ripe, it can produce outstanding wines.

Rieslaner: A  cross between Silvaner and Riesling, characterised by its fine acidity and elegant style. Rieslaner can create wines of the highest quality.
