Dear Stephan

The estate is located in the municipality of Roßbach (Neuenburg Castle area), a district of Naumburg in the German wine-growing region Saale-Unstrut, It was founded in 1992 and is now owned by Andrea Herzer, winegrower's daughter from Dorndorf an der Unstrut, and studied business administration and her husband Stephan from the Palatinate, graduate engineer for viticulture and cellar management. In 2000, a historic farm was purchased from the two in the center of Roßbach, which was subsequently restored and expanded into a winery. The vineyards cover 21 hectares of vineyards in individual locations stone Masters (Naumburg) and Rappental (Dorndorf). They are planted 80% with the white varieties Weißer Burgunder, Müller-Thurgau, Riesling, Silvaner, Grauer Burgunder, Gutedel, Bacchus and Kerner, and 20% with the red varieties Dornfelder, Portugieser, Blauer Zweigelt and André. For many years, environmentally friendly viticulture has been controlled, for example greening and harmonious plant nutrition. By using the disrupter (Pheromone trap) can completely open insecticides to be dispensed with. A consequent reduction in yield through targeted thin out by hand enables ripe, healthy grapes. The pure-toned musts are vinified with restrained fermentation to fresh and fruity, mainly dry, but also semi-dry and lovely white wines, whereby great emphasis is placed on varietal and layered, typical for the area. The dry red wines are traditionally mash fermented and aged in barriques. It also produces noble sweet quality wines, bottle-fermented sparkling wines and fine brandies (pomace).
