Die Spitze der Weinberge
Wines of the highest quality are the “Grosse Gewächse Pfalz” from our top sites. They are produced and inspected according to the guidelines of the VDP. Comparable with a Grand Cru, these wines originate exclusively from the absolutely finest vineyards with discernible terroir qualities that have demonstrated their potential over a long period a time. Yields are extremely low (on average: 38 hl/ha). Only completely ripe grapes in optimal condtion are used in handcrafting these wines.
