In 1400, the Liebfraumilch has been cultivated by Capucin monks around the church of "Our dear lady", in the citycentre of Worms, Rheinhessen. Peter Joseph Valckenberg exported the “Liebfraumilch” as the first one in history. In 1908, Nicolas Valckenberg created the wine line “Liebfrauenstift".
The warm and dry summer certainly left its mark, especially in the younger vine stands, where the drought stress was clearly evident. Sites where the vines are up to 130 years old, and thus have dug down into the deeper layers of earth, had an easier time accessing even deep-set water reserves. The experience of the past 20 years has established that old vine stands can produce fruit of outstanding quality even in the face of difficult weather conditions. Harvest this year only started in late September, yet the wines are already presenting magnificently, and we were even able to harvest grapes for VDP.GROSSES GEWÄCHS® wines, not a given every year on the steep slopes of the Mosel.
