The Castell family owns 80 hectares of the finest franconian vineyard sides. The majority is the white variety Silvaner. The terroir is characterized by a continental climate and gypsum skeuper soil, which gives the wines their spicy, strong note.
April 6th, 1659 was to become an important date for Castell, Franconian and also German viticulture - the first planting ..
The year 2019 was overall very dry. After a dry winter followed a dry Spring. At the end of April, the wine grapes exhibited a huge shoot. A late frost in May impaired the vineyards and brought some extra work. The end of June and July were extremely hot and dry! The grapes grew very fast, but some species such as Bacchus were sunburned. The harvest started early in the beginning of September and lasted only 18 days. We have good quality but less crop. The wines now are elegant and harmonic.
Located directly under the Schlossberg - separated only by the rise to the former castle ruins on the Schlossberg. Steeply and southward sloping, the Spätburgunder vines grow and produce grapes of exceptional and great character.
