Following a long time of hard work to reach this milestone, in 2013 our winery finally became a member of the Association of German Prädikat Wine Estates (Verband Deutscher Prädikatsweingüter – VDP), the first estate from the Nahe region to become a new member in twelve years. However, the fact that we have successfully joined the ranks of Germany’s top producers certainly does not mean that we are going to rest on our laurels now.
We aim to further improve the quality of our wines with each vintage. The wines should increasingly express the immense potential of our excellent vineyard sites and become more specific and full of character.
MEANS ABOVE ALL:
WE STILL NEED TO
Today I, Sebastian Schäfer, am in charge of our winery, which has been family-run for four generations. My passion and ambition to become one of the best was already recognized in 2001, when I had the good fortune of being awarded the title of “Young Winemaker of the Year”. These days, our wines win awards and receive the highest ratings because they are full of character and we do not compromise on quality. This makes us proud. And we intend to keep up the good work.
