Winegrowing is going on here since the Roman times, and the region has slate rocks, steep slopes, and terraces, ideal for making intricate and unique wines.

They expanded the area through leasing and planting vines in an area of almost 6.5 hectares in the slopes of the Middle Rhine.
The quality of our wines is thanks to the uniqueness of their locations and a lot of manual work. They visit every single vine many times a year to increase the quality of the grapes. Their St. Goarer locations Frohwingert and Ameisenberg offer an incline of up to 70%, and their south-southeast orientation provides optimal conditions for great wines. The Middle Rhine slate weathering floor comes unadulterated into the glass and creates wines of extraordinary depth and minerality.
