Discover our Wine World

We love and create full-bodied Burgundies and tangy fruity Rieslings. We’re passionate about experimenting with different harvest times, fermentation methods, wooden barrels and maturation times. Improving everything that drives the world of wine to deliver quality is what also pushes us further.

However, what motivates us even more, are visions that can be found outside the expected.

Pioneer Grape Varities

Natural resistance! Our pioneer grape varieties are new grape varieties that produce impressive wines and at the same time have a robust and natural resistance to fungal attack. A chapter in wine history that is currently writing the future more than ever. As pioneers in pioneer grape varieties, we can now confidently offer an interesting and complex range of these new wines of the highest quality.

With the so-called fungus-resistant grape varieties, known as Piwis for short, we save plant treatment agents, fuel for the machines and time. Time that we prefer to invest in other sustainable projects. We think that is genuine sustainability!

And best of all, our loyal wine community shares our enthusiasm for these enriching new grape varieties. In the meantime, PIWIs are already growing on more than 50% of our vineyard areas. They are named Cabertin, Cabernet blanc, Sauvignac, Cabernet Cantor, Prior, Johanniter or Muscaris and thus reveal their origin.

Whoever gets involved with them enters a new and exciting world of wine.


With this grape variety, which is well over 500 years old and almost forgotten, we’re preserving a living piece of wine history. Only a few wineries in Germany still have it in their vineyards; here it grows on more than one hectare. In Luther Year 2021, it is of special significance: Legend has it that the church reformer was very fond of Malvasia wine during his visit to the Diet of Worms. For us, it’s incredibly exciting to rethink how we’ll modernize this aged wine-making process.


As a native of Rheinhessen, our heart naturally beats for the classic grape varieties, as well. Our focus is on Riesling, to which we devote all our love and passion. Sometimes spontaneously fermented, sometimes harvested from old vines. Our future project is our Riesling in the top site Westhofener Brunnhäuschen, where limestone, clay marl and the so-called terra rossa provide juicy and mineral Rieslings. But we are also very enthusiastic about Pinot Noir, and with Scheurebe we also have a very classic Rhine-Hessian representative in cultivation.
