Weingut

The Castell family owns 70 hectares of the finest franconian vineyard sides. The majority is the white variety Silvaner. The terroir is characterized by a continental climate and gypsum skeuper soil, which gives the wines their spicy, strong note.


Jahrgangsbericht

Followed by a cold winter, April began a hot and dry summer. All foliage work had to be done quickly. In early June they had the last significant rainfall, unfortunately with hailstorms.  The harvest was over in only 20 days, the grapes hang healthy and as if painted on the vines. Also, no rainy season was in sight, thus the grape harvest went without any problems. The vineyards have brought good qualities despite these adversities.


Terroir

Weinherstellung
