200 years of grape growing have given these committed organic farmers a wealth of vineyards to work. Humble beginnings have lead them on a steady march towards pure, terroir driven wines in their little corner of the Nahe. As friends and neighbors of Dönnhoff, they knew they had to find their own place in hearts of Riesling lovers, and so focused their attention on value, good wines at great prices.

Im Pitterberg

Pitterberg lies in a small convex slope in the upper Nahe Valley in the middle of the Pitterberg vineyard. The south facing site is ensured sufficient sunshine that warms the grey Devon slate and its weathered debris. The soil is highly mineral; very fine loam covers the slate. The soil is well-drained and holds little moisture, which can lead to dryness in summer. Nightly fall winds are diverted by hill. This GG is picked mainly in the old domaine vineyards in the oldest an steepest part of Pitterberg, high density of plant up to 7500 vines per HA

German Wines

Is there a better grape than Riesling? Is there a better value? Its fruit purity, its perfume, and its mineral nuance are all unparalleled. And for centuries, the top German Rieslings were priced accordingly: at least as expensive as the top red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But nowadays you could spend a lifetime exploring Germany’s great Riesling-producing regions while staying well within your budget. You might take an occasional break to try Germany’s other white grapes or perhaps a glass of Spätburgunder (the local name for Pinot Noir). It’s time to get started!
