Milk Karl Hermann

The estate is located in the municipality of Monsheim (Wonnegau area) in the German wine-growing region Rheinhessen, Viticulture has been documented in the traditional Milch family since 1709. The company is located in a former grain mill, the history of which goes back to 1413. In 1926 the mill was purchased by the Milch family and viticulture, agriculture, fruit growing and animal husbandry were carried out. As early as the early 1950s, wines were bottled and sold. At the end of the 1970s, the company finally specialized in viticulture. Today the estate is owned by Karl-Hermann Milch. The vineyards cover over 13 hectares of vineyards in the individual layers of the rose garden and Silberberg (Monsheim) and Nonnengarten (Mörstadt). They are planted with the white varieties Chardonnay (45%), Müller-Thurgau, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc, as well as with the red varieties Pinot Noir, Dornfelder, Frühburgunder and Cabernet Sauvignon. The house specialty is various Chardonnay wines. The white wines are mainly aged dry. Depending on the desired wine style, the red wines mature in large wooden barrels or in barriques. Around 60,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. Pomace brandies are also produced.
