The estate in Palatine was established in 1994 by the Schneider family in Ellerstadt. Today Markus Schneider cultivates 90 hectars and established his wines worldwide.
Compared to 2017, the 2018 vintage was a moderate year and a great challenge for the harvest team in the vineyards and in the cellar. On the night of July 5, a large summer thunderstorm occurred, damaging a large part of the berries (about 20%). In the following hot and dry temperatures, the damaged berries dried and they had a wonderful summer season. After the long and very hot summer and perfect conditions, the harvest started on September 1 with Sauvignon Blanc and ended on the second weekend of October. The ripeness exceeded our expectations and crowned the 2017 vintage with very aromatic juice.
