The estate in Palatine was established in 1994 by the Schneider family in Ellerstadt. Today Markus Schneider cultivates 90 hectars and established his wines worldwide.
At the night of April 20, Mother Nature showed off who the real "boss in the ring" is and drastically reduced the young shoots in all the plots. After all, they weren´t attached from summer storms or hail. Picking started at the end of August with the first Sauvignon Blanc berries and finished the harvest after exactly 35 days. One of the shortest harvest periods, after 50 years.
