Wine from the oldest wineyard of the world
For several decades we have owned a unique spot of land: the oldest vineyard in the world. Already at the time of the Thirty Years’ War, an unknown winegrower planted vines in the “Rhodter Rosengarten” at the entrance to Rhodt under Rietburg, as the church records document. 300 ancient, gnarled Gewürztraminer vines still grow today on the valuable limestone marl soil, which is interspersed with loess and clay. It is a matter of honour that we cultivate this Wingert with a lot of love – even if the yield is tiny.
