2020 – the top vintage! As we can see backwards the latest vintages, the growth conditions changing year by year. A major challenge for me and my team in the vineyards and in the cellar. The vegetation started with mild temperatures and no frost, a perfect vegetation started a bit earlier than usual. We had a wonderful summer season. We weren´t attached from summer storms. After the long summer and perfect pre-condition we started picking end of August with the first Sauvignon Blanc berries and finished the harvest after exactly 40 days. The ripeness exceeded our expectations; they topped the two best vintages 2003 and 2015. The first conclusion to say: One of the best vintages so far – but with a few less white wine cases…
