"We have made our quality wines even more powerful - by exactly 1 hp."
Tradition may also be progressive!
In 2011 we began a working method again, as did our oldest partner the Heinz Bergdolt-Reif at the start of his working career, namely “Horsepower”. We now manage some of our best vineyards exclusively with horsepower. Why do we do what we do? Because this traditional method loosens the earth, allowing the soil to breathe. This delivers a higher quality to the grape and character to the wine.
Cold blooded but heart warming
As original and traditional as the husbandary method is the animal itself, the horse working in our vineyards is a Rheinish-German Cold-Blood. You are cordially invited to see for yourself, so as to get an idea of how he moves and works through our vineyards. You'll enjoy the touch of the “good old days” - and the spicy scent of a healthy and vibrant soil.
Wines with strong character
Three of our top wines; Grauburgunder, Spätburgunder und Weißburgunder come from the prestigious location "Mandelberg", which enjoys elaborate labour-intensive hand-management with horsepower. This we truly believe develops an even stronger and fuller character. But see for yourself from our range of special wines born using this traditional yet innovative distinct cultivation.
