The estate is located in the commune of Kürnbach (Kraichgau area) in the Baden wine-growing region in Germany. It was founded in 1999 by Helmut and Hannelore Grahm as a sideline. The son Jochen Grahm has been running the business full-time since 2010. The vineyards cover eight hectares of vineyards in the individual layers Altenberg (Heidelsheim) and Lerchenberg (Kürnbach) in the growing region to bathe
, and Kupferhalde (Oberderdingen) in the growing area Wuerttemberg
, They are planted with the white varieties Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Traminer, Muskateller, Müller-Thurgau, Scheurebe and Auxerrois, as well as with the red varieties Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Black Riesling and Lemberger.
When using resources, you are guided by the principles of one sustainable
Economic activity. When choosing the location of the grape variety, a varietal soil management takes place, in which the orientation of the vineyard, the soil type
, the natural soil moisture and the condition and age of the vines is taken into account. Artificial irrigation
is waived. Targeted sowing in late summer and fertilization
with specially made compost
serve soil fertility. For gentle tillage, the permanent reduction in the use of chemical agents and the use of pheromones
in the control of insect pests. The goal is healthy, physiologically mature
and aromatic grapes for highly aromatic, varietal
Wines and bottle-fermented sparkling wines.
The grapes are processed gently using gravity. The red wines are more traditional, more open maceration
fermented in laid paper and, depending on the type, aged in stainless steel tanks or in barriques. The white and rosé wines are after the gentle squeeze
fermented in stainless steel tanks for up to four weeks, depending on the type of grape and the quality of the must. Only quality wines are produced. The only exception is the "frontier worker", although the individual components comply with the quality wine regulations of the two growing regions. There is no predicate wine designation in favor of an in-house classification with a "three-star system".
