Founded in 1200, the estate is now managed by Prince Felix zu Salm-Salm in the 32th generation. It is the oldest family-owned estate in Germany and cultivates vineyard sites on the Nahe region aswell as in Rheinhessen.
Dry beginning. Great finish. An early budbreak has become the new normal. Also, the small amount of rain in combination with higher temperatures throughout the summer. We needed to adapt the vineyard management, in order to cope with the new conditions. This has worked perfectly so we were able to harvest super healthy grapes. The balance of acidity and sugar was outstanding and the aroma of the grapes exploded, especially towards October, bringing super balanced wines with a great body.
vineyard sites Johannisberg and Berg Roxheim, red slate soil and parts of sandy loam, yield reduction to 25 hectoliters per hectare
