More than 25 Hectares of Vineyards
Care and Great Dedication
Get to Know Organic Wines
Our wine estate carries out viticulture on more than 25 hectares, that’s some 62 acres, across Iphofen’s renowned vineyard sites: Julius-Echter-Berg, Kronsberg and Kalb. By modest clipping and consistent yield regulation, we increase the richness of taste at the expense of mass production. A late harvest ensures the highest grape maturity possible.
All wines mature in our cool and spacious cellars which are two and three levels below ground. The equipment in these cellars is state-of-the-art and facilitates the best maturation of our white and red wines. Stainless steel and oak Barrique offer ideal development potentialities. In the same cellars, we also produce our sparkling wine from our own grapes in accordance with the traditional champagne method.
Since 2009, we have been transforming our estate into a Bioland* estate. Our 2012 wines were the first vintage produced as and named organic wines in accordance with Bioland regulations.
