The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

Wines can only be described to a certain extent. What counts is what you feel on your tongue and palate, what your nose sniffs out and what spreads as a feeling of well-being in your stomach. You are therefore cordially invited to all wine tastings in our tasting room or in the barrel cellar. On special request and after advance booking, we will be happy to serve you a snack or vesper plate. During a guided tour through the vineyards (provided the weather is good) or through the cellars and our production rooms you will gain an authentic impression of the work of a winegrower.

Your family celebrations or company parties are also in good hands with us. Please clarify your desired date in good time. We will be happy to make you an individual offer for your wishes. Just give us a call: 0 26 43 - 35 80. We will be happy to advise you.
