Monday to Friday
Bernhard Huber cultivates the 26 hectares of the family vineyards, with varieties of mainly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but also a small amount of Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris.
The 2017 vintage began with late frosts in April. Temperatures as low as -5°C affected almost all Chardonnays in the Schlossberg and we generally had a 30% crop loss. It could have been worse, as most vines recovered and latent bud developed, sometimes with small bunches. Because of these differences in development, frost was a major challenge during vegetation and harvest. The harvest began at the end of August, accompanied by an intense selection in the vineyard with the result of fine fruity wines with a lot of elegance, purity and freshness.
