Great wines in small quantities

We are a small Family Winery in Markgräflerland, Baden. We are located between Freiburg in Breisgau and Basel in Switzerland, in southwest germany, near the Black Forest. For more than 300 years our family has been dedicated itself to growing vines and develop wines. Our main varieties are gutedel, pinot noir, pinot blanc, pinot gris and chardonnay. Because we only have 10 hectares, we are able to do everything within the family, in the vineyards and in the cellar.

Artisanal, traditional and terroir-driven​

First our goal is that the next generations can also make great wines on healthy soil.

Because only in humus loose soils with a high proportion of microorganisms can wines be produced, which reflect the character of the soil and terroir.
That’s why we work close to nature and use biological means.

Through intensive foliage work, thinning in summer and selective hand picking, sometimes in several passes, we control the yields to achieve our desired quality.
The long-term yields are between 50 and 60 hl per hectare and thus 40% below the legally permitted.

We develop the wines from different locations and plots separately in order to preserve the typical character that the terroir has given our grapes.
