H.O. grasped the potential of the Zellertal as far back as the late 1990s. In a time when identity was being forgotten and origin relegated to nothingness, he understood the greatness inherent to this site: the same limestone base that powers the Frauenberg also runs through to Mölsheim. The Schwarzer Herrgott forms the border between Rheinhessen and the Pfalz and is among the oldest officially documented sites. It has been classified as a Große Lage since 2007, and produces deep and powerful wines with a dark, saline character.
