King Klaus & Ursula

The winery is located in the community of Lorch in the German Rheingau wine region. The family business has been managed by Klaus and Ursula König since 1983. The vineyards cover 15 hectares of vine area mainly on the steep Rhine slopes of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Upper Middle Rhine Valley in the individual locations Frankenthal, Hinterkirch and Höllenberg (Assmannshausen), Kapellenberg (Lorch), Seligmacher (Lorchhausen) as well as Berg Roseneck, Berg Rottland, Bischofsberg and Drachenstein (Rüdesheim). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling andPinot Blanc as well as the red wine varietiesPinot Noir and Frühburgunder. Low yields are an important quality criterion in the vineyard.

The white wines are generally matured fresh and fruity in stainless steel tanks. The red wines are fermented on the mash. They then mature for the most part in large oak barrels (600 to 3,000 litres), a small part in barrique barrels. The premium wines are Spätburgunder Assmannshäuser Höllenberg, Riesling Rüdesheimer Berg and Riesling Lorcher Kapellenberg. Grape juices, bottle-fermented sparkling wines, sparkling wines and noble spirits (marc, yeast, wine) are also produced. About 120,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. The winery is a member of the associations Rheingauer Weinbauverband, BRW Bund Rheingauer Weinbaufachschulabsolventen and Technikerverband Weinbau Bad Kreuznach.
