Sheltered on the edge of the Mittelhaardt forest, all Burgundy grape varieties thrive particularly well in the mild climate of the Rhine Valley (along with figs, almonds and sweet chestnuts). But our vineyards also offer the best conditions for great, dry Rieslings. It was precisely here, in the Pfalz, that Pinot Gris was recognized as a grape variety in the 19th century and first vinified independently. The unique regional climate of the Middle Haardt, the mineral-rich soils of limestone, basalt and sandstone, as well as the great age of the vines are the building blocks for the terroir of our vineyards. Their importance for the production of outstanding wines was recognized a long time ago.
