Our Home

Gundersheim, a small wine village in southern

Our Home is right where oleanders, figs and almond trees thrive at their best in Germany. In the wine village of Gundersheim, right in the heart of Rhineland-Palatinate, about 40 km south of Mainz and 20 km west of Worms, we live surrounded by the best Rhine-Hessian vineyards.

Our vineyards are located at historical sites such as Höllenbrand, Morstein, Brunnenhäuschen, Aulerde and Königstuhl. Optimal sun exposure and deep soils allow even heavy red wines to mature to their full potential.

These ideal conditions along with Rheinhessen’s desire for individualism and innovation, appealed to us as well. Thus, an exciting range of different grape varieties is now populating our vineyards.

A Good Climate

We have either a little more or a lot less of everything. As to more: Up to 1700 sunshine hours. Our average annual temperature is also above average and makes life in Rheinhessen pleasant. It rains less here than in other regions. With an average annual rainfall of only about 500 mm, this region is one of the driest in Germany. It’s therefore not surprising that the ancient Romans realized: A lot of sun + little rainfall = optimal wine climate!

Fertile Soil

Rheinhessen has special and diverse soils. There is no petroleum slate as on the Moselle or the Middle Rhine, no combination of volcanic rock and loess as in the Kaiserstuhl. As a former inland sea, our Rhine-Hessian soils are characterized by mighty shell limestone bedrock with a nutrient-rich loess loam layer. Guarantors for fruity, fresh and lively wines with a lot of expression and their own character.
