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 year started well with little rainfall but a great bud break and an even better blossoming. In summer we saw some of the hottest days we can remember resulting in some damage and sunburn. This resulted in very strict picking and selection during harvest. The September days brought super results with aromatic wines with a great acidity. In October, the cold and wet weather brought a quick end to the harvest. 2019 is a fascinating and strong vintage.
