Aus den Lagen
In spring 2022, our assortment changed profoundly. Instead of the estate and village wines, there is now, in addition to our single vineyard wines, only one more wine per variety. These wines come from our best sites, are hand-picked, spontaneously fermented and carefully blended. They represent our way of making wine, our ambition and our origin.
The basis of our wine line “Aus den Lagen” are all estate-owned, classified vineyards with their soils and microclimates, which are located on a length of almost five kilometers along the Haardtrand. Our “Aus den Lagen” series, which comes exclusively from classified VDP.ERSTEN and VDP.GROSSEN LAGEN, thus corresponds to a classic “Second Vin” in international comparison. With this new wine line, we can implement our focus on wines of origin from clearly defined single vineyards – true to our motto “Terroir down to the cellar” – even more consistently. Since the wines come “Aus den Lagen”, the best vineyards of our region, the name was obvious.
Lots from Gimmeldinger (Kapellenberg) and Mußbacher (Eselshaut) VDP.Erste Lagen as well as graded barrels from our crus in Gimmeldingen and Königsbach combine their unique structure and finesse. Fermented with 20-30% whole grapes, aged 18 months with 20% new wood, bottled in May 2021.
