The grapes for our ESTATE wines are harvested by hand from our Westhofen vineyards. These elegant, fruit-driven varietal wines pair magnificently with food.
VDP.ORTSWEIN are authentic ambassadors of their community. The grapes must be grown all within a single municipality in traditional vineyards of distinctive character. Westhofen’s typically clayey-marl and limestone soil lends itself to wines of notable depth and great expression.
Wines from first-class sites of notable historical significance. Starting with the 2018 vintage, VDP.AUS ERSTEN LAGEN® wines are recognized as Rheinhessen’s finest ambassadors for individual winegrowing towns and so proudly bear the name of their municipality. Each wine is a singular and unmistakable expression of its origin.
Riesling from our absolute top vineyards based on the VDP.Rheinhessen classification.
Harvested in the best parcels of the Westhofener Cru vineyardsites, processed in traditional barrels or Barrique, with a maturing on the lees for at least 15 month.
Our grapes from organically cultivated vineyards come in part from winegrower friends of ours who live close to our home in the southern Rheinhessen. The grapes are harvested with great care and subsequently fermented in our cellars.
