Our Rothenberg parcel is the last ungrafted plot on the Roter Hang. Thanks to its isolated position, the vines there - first planted in 1934 - escaped the official plot reallocations of the 1960s. We knew back in the 1980s when it was offered to us that this winegrowing jewel - hemmed in by a stone wall on the vineyard’s steepest section - would be a labor of love. Set at the top of the hillside, the vines benefit from the morning sun and cool fall winds; these grand wines represent an unbroken link to the historical greatness of the Rothenberg.
