Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir)
In Germany, the Spätburgunder is to red wine what the Riesling is to white wine: the cream of the crop.
Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc)
As an ancient variety Weißburgunder thrives in fertile soils and ripens late. With a neutral bouquet, drier styles are extremely popular with food.
A newer variety with great promise, Dornfelder produces wine far deeper in color than is typical of German reds. Fragrant, full-bodied, complex wines with a fairly tannic acidity.
The most famous of all German grape varietals, Riesling produces rich, elegant wines of incomparable fragrance and taste, reminiscent of peaches or apples.
An old variety that once was the most important grape in Germany and today planted on our very own vineyard. Silvaner produces full-bodied, neutral wines best enjoyed while young.

From white wine to mulled wine
As the days get shorter and the temperatures drop, mulled wine is the perfect choice to keep you warm.
While the typical mulled wine is usually made with red wine, in recent years mulled wine from white wine has become increasingly popular providing a slightly lighter and fruitier alternative.
