Die Familie Castell ist Eigentümerin von 70 Hektar feinster fränkische Weinlagen. Die Mehrheit ist mit der Rebsorte Silvaner bepflanzt. Das Terroir ist geprägt von kontinentalem Klima und Gipskeuperböden, was den Weinen ihre würzige, kräftige Note verleiht.
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.
