The History of our Terrain and our Vineyards

Tens of thousands of years ago, a volcanic eruption brought forth the porphyry, quartzite and granite that characterise our lands today (Eichenstein vineyard). Moraine soil (Marling vineyard) with mineral-rich deposits  typify the landscape and the soil; The climate, soil, location and landscape nurture the growth and the success of our wines. To the north, the towering peaks shelter us from harsh winds, and the open lands of the south bring the warmth of the Mediterranean climate. The temperature fluctuations between day and night bring finesse and freshness, and exploiting these conditions to their best advantage is our task. The terroir is our dearest treasure.

and Multi-Faceted
