The passion for viticulture was already laid in the cradle of the two brothers Stephan and Michael Weber by the Wiltinger grandparents. Initially, both brothers took different professional paths, but the care and maintenance of the grandparents' vines was never absent. Studies at the renowned Geisenheim University of Viticulture helped to turn the hobby into a vocation. And so, in 2011, the first of their own wines was bottled.
In the 2018 vintage, drought and heat as well as the fear of hailstorms or heavy rain kept the vintners on their toes. The harvest for the early ripening varieties began in August and for the Riesling in mid-September. Healthy grapes, which really hung on the shoots as if painted, aroused great anticipation. The rain in September, which did not result in rot thanks to the cool nights, increased the juice yield. With must weights that were, for example, in the late harvest range for Riesling with an average of 85 degrees Oechsle, the wines of the 2018 vintage are characterized by rich aromas, a harmonious structure with moderate acidity and elegant, full-bodied fruitiness.
