The vineyards on the middle Rhine river
The origin of a wine is fundamental to its uniqueness and character. In southern Europe, the excess of sunshine and warmth has an equalizing, standardizing effect, whereas the further northern the wine origin lies, the more pronounced is the influence of climatic fluctuations.
At the middle Rhine, the Romans had already inaugurated the wine growing over 2000 years ago.
Wine obtains its character also through the soil. The individualities of the soil are absorbed through the vine roots, to be rediscovered in the character of the wine itself. Slate gives white wines a typical slim and fruit-like, sparkling and mineral character. The slate soil also stores the sun's warmth whilst retaining little water which produces a natural regulatory process.
The vineyards of the estate lie within the boundaries of Oberwesel, Dellhofen, Engeholl and Langscheid.
These are steep and even the steepest locations, machine-equipment can only be used under exceptional circumstances.
However, the tedious manual labor protects the valuable plants as well as the fruit, and necessitates only a minimum of refining-agents during the processing of the wine.
