The estate is located in the commune of Großheubach in the "lower mill" (Mainviereck area) in the German wine-growing region Franconia
, The family specialized in viticulture in 1975 and the old mill was converted into a hedge farm. The family business was taken over in 1990 by the wine technician Stefan Kremer, who he has been running with his wife Christine since then. The mostly steeply terraced vineyards cover five hectares of vineyards on heat-storing colored sandstone weathering soils. 60% of them are planted with the white varieties Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Bacchus, Kerner, Riesling, Scheurebe, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc, and 40% with the red varieties Pinot Noir, Portugieser, Regent, St. Laurent and Cabernet Dorsa.
The management is environmentally friendly according to the guidelines of natural viticulture. Relevant quality-enhancing measures are short pruning
with organic composts
, intense foliage care
and thin out
, By selective hand picking only fully ripe, healthy grapes are processed. After gentle pressing, the white grapes are fermented in stainless steel with the aim of aromatic, fresh white wines. The red grapes go through a classic one after being stripped maceration
and are then expanded in large wooden barrels, some of the top products in barriques. A bottle-fermented sparkling wine and Secco are also produced. The new premium line "The FIRST" was introduced in 2013. Chardonnay, Silvaner and Pinot Blanc are harvested with strictly selective hand picking. They are carefully processed with slow aromatic fermentation and months of yeast storage in wooden barrels.
