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 ..
A wet summer followed by a constant dry and seasonal warm September and October. This gave the grapes the possibility to ripen to perfection. Therefore, harvest started only in the second half of September until end of October. A careful selection of the grapes during the harvest, due to the wet summer, resulted in healthy, perfectly maturity vines. The Silvaner already shows great potential.
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.
Spontaneous whole cluster fermentation for 7 days. Then aged for 18 months on the fine lees in small oak barrels.
