The Neipperg family owns 32 hectars located in the wineregion Württemberg, which are divided in three monopole sites: Neippberger Schlossberg, Schwaigerner Ruthe and Klingenberger Schlossberg.
Vintage 2015 was characterized by a long period of drought in the summer coupled with an extreme heat wave. The result was a smaller berry size. Although this meant lower quantity, the quality was superb, as the smaller berries were very concentrated and healthy, with a high Oechsle level. A dry autumn with cool mornings made for ideal harvest conditions. 2015 belongs, undoubtedly, among the top vintages at our estate (along with 2011, 2009, and 2003) and maybe even better.
