Today Gerhard farms 18 hectares of carefully managed vineyards (although his father still helps out) and oversees the cellars. They keep yields small and seek to preserve the ecological balance in everything they do. In the cellar Gerhard`s approach is measured and minimalistic-fining and filtering are kept to a minimum, and only small quantities of sulphur are used. Both the Riesling and the Spätburgunder are delightfully fresh and transparent expressions of Palatinate terroir. The family`s pursuit of high quality fruit combined with a respect for the region`s traditions means they are part of a top group of German organic winegrowers.
