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.
The 2016 harvest brought great qualities into the cellar, despite a very challenging year, with extreme weather influences. Until July the average rainfall of a whole year had already been reached. Beginning in August the summer really kicked in. Little rainfall and high temperatures accompanied the weeks until the beginning of harvest on the 26nd of September. The weather influences just before and during the harvest have become more important than ever. The good weather conditions during this year’s harvest allowed the harvest team to pick grapes with a great ripeness level and healthy grapes.
