Where we come from
“Deutsches Weintor” is the entrance to “Deutsche Weinstraße” (German Wine Route), the country´s oldest wine track. Built nearly 90 years ago it belongs to us and our winery was named after this monument.
This impressive gate is situated directly on the border to Alsace, France. It is 20 meters high, 16 meters in breadth and hidden beneath are wine cellars with a capacity of 400.000 liters. Two copper motifs crown its` brim, symbols of eternal prosperity meant for the vintners along the route. In this cultural landscape the Pfalz (Palatinate) one finds light-hearted and untroubled mentality, a mediterranean climate and many rich pleasures.
Situated along the German Wine Route, Germanys` foremost wine-growing region with almost 23.400 hectares is an absolute must for wine lovers.
