International White Winemaker of the Year 2017

We were the first German winery ever to be named White Winemaker of the Year in 2017 at the International Wine Challenge in London. A great honour, which does not refer to a special wine, but to our collection of the last decades. This recognition is a motivation for us to continue to put our energy into the optimal quality of our wines.
