Light or heavy, elegant or muscular, fiery or fine — soil, geology, microclimate and topography shape the taste, character and individual style of each wine. The winemaker is tasked with applying skill and craftsmanship to preserve as much of that distinctive natural character as possible. When nature meets know-how – that is what we call "terroir."

Our vineyards are located primarily in Hochheim on Main, our hometown. Over the years we have also acquired prime vineyards in Rüdesheim and Assmannshausen as well. The vineyards in those locations are notably shaped by slate and quartzite, producing fine, mineral wines that represent a lovely counterpoint to the powerful bottles from Hochheim.
