In 1400, the Liebfraumilch has been cultivated by Capucin monks around the church of "Our dear lady", in the citycentre of Worms, Rheinhessen. Peter Joseph Valckenberg exported the “Liebfraumilch” as the first one in history. In 1908, Nicolas Valckenberg created the wine line “Liebfrauenstift".
In retrospect, the winegrowers consider it a stroke of luck that the vines in Rheinhessen sprouted later than usual this year, because the shoots in Germany's largest winegrowing region were spared the night frosts in April. Compared to previous years, the late start of the harvest in mid-September was also a fortunate coincidence, because beautiful September days contributed decisively to the fact that they were able to harvest "a very appealing vintage". Ripening in the cool nights produces fruity wines that offer a wide spectrum of aromas even with moderate alcohol content.
