The wines of the different grape varieties differ fundamentally from one another in taste and smell.



The typical Riesling has a pale yellow color tending towards greenish-yellow, the scent is dominated by peach or apple, in the mouth you can feel a racy acidity.

The Müller-Thurgau grape variety, also known as Rivaner, ripens early and produces tasty, sometimes flowery wines with a fine, fruity nutmeg aroma. The acid is rather mild.

Sylvaner is diversity. An uncomplicated summer wine, a smooth, creamy barrique wine, a well-developed, elegant and lively large plant or an intense, long-lasting noble sweetener. Everything is possible. The grape variety perfectly reflects its terroir and combines the earthy tones with delicate fruity aromas and mild acidity.

Wines from the Scheurebe mostly have a sweet flavor. The color can range from pale yellow to intense golden yellow. It is characterized by an accentuated bouquet of varieties and a harmonious combination of stimulating acidity and delicately fruity sweetness. The accentuated bouquet is mostly reminiscent of black currants (cassis), less often of mango, mandarins, limes, peaches or very ripe pears.

Wines from Pinot gris are usually dry, medium-bodied and slightly acidic. Depending on the harvest, the color is pale yellow, golden yellow or even amber. The Pinot Gris is assigned in particular scented aromas of green nuts, almonds, fresh butter and fruity aromas that are reminiscent of pear, dried fruit and raisins, pineapple and citrus fruits. There are also notes of green beans or green pepper.

Würzer is a very aromatic and spicy variety that makes a very fine wine. Depending on the soil and yield, the wines are more elegant or heavier. What they all have in common is a relatively mild acidity. Depending on the harvest, typical flavorings have a straw yellow to golden yellow color and exude, sometimes subtle, sometimes lush, a scent reminiscent of elderflower; Sometimes you can also find the scent of acacia blossoms, violets, honey, marzipan, quince jelly, bitter oranges or passion fruit.


The Spätburgunder or Pinot Noir is mainly developed as a dry red wine. If the grapes are pressed immediately after the harvest, a Blanc de Noirs, a white wine made from dark grapes, can be made from the nearly colorless juice. Pinot Noir wines taste full-bodied and velvety, have a fruity aroma and nuances of almond. The typical Pinot Noir has a slightly sweet scent of red fruits, from strawberries to cherries and blackberries to black currants.

Dornfelder is mainly developed as a dry red wine, sometimes also as a semi-dry wine. It has intense fruit aromas such as cherries, blackberries and elderberries. It is a full-bodied, smooth and harmonious wine. The Dornfelder is easy to recognize by its deep dark color.

Our Soils

The soil on which the vines grow also affects the taste of the wine.

Our vines grow on a wide variety of soils with great geological diversity. They consist of slate, quartzite, phyllite, sandstone, clay, porphyry, porphyrite and loess.




Riesling, Silvaner and Müller Thurgau vines that grow on slate, quartzite and phyllite result in fine, fruity, classy and rounded wines. If these vines grow on sandstone and slate or clay soils, they result in strong, distinctive and sustainable wines.



Riesling, Müller-Thurgau and Scheurebe, which grow on red sandstone soils, result in balanced, juicy and flowery wines with fine, stimulating acidity.



Silvaner and Müller-Thurgau vines, which grow on very calcareous loess and tertiary clay soils, produce mild, elegant, extract-rich, delicate and fine-flowery wines.



If the Riesling vine grows on rubble of volcanic origin (quartz, red porphyry and porphyrite), this results in rich, fruity wines with a fine spice and finesse.
