The quest for the perfect wine

»Great things are achieved by courage, greater things by love, and the greatest by patience.« (The Austrian poet Peter Rosegger, 1843 - 1918). The start of a great wine lies in the winemaker?s imagination.

We use to keep close watch on nature. Each year is different. The experiences we made in the past change our view and our range of options. You have to consider carefully which means to take to influence, to control, to improve, and to enhance. And you have to find out at which point control becomes manipulation.

Each wine has only one spring, one summer, one autumn, and one ripening season. Once you become aware of this fact, you know what it means to be patient. Only those who have a vision will find the way to their goal.

Pure wine poetry

What does happiness taste of? Does wine contain memories?
Words, pictures, past, and future ...

Wine is a perfect storyteller. At times you are hungry for short, happy stories, every now and then you feel the need for an impressive tale, occasionally even for a melancholy one - all depends on the situation, how you are feeling at that very moment. That is what defines our passion for wine. That, and the exchange with the people who enjoy these stories and use our wines to unleash their imagination, to get hold of a moment in time. This enthusiasm is what drives me in my daily efforts to create a good wine.

Architecture

In the broadest sense, the word architecture describes how people deal with built space. Just as Escherndorf is our home, our winery is our home. A home for our family and the birthplace of our wines. We want our rooms to be alive and that the philosophy of our trade can be found in our winery.
