In our terraces on the Zöbing Heiligenstein, Riesling vines are rooted in 270 year old Zöbing Perm rock, a unique geological formation of volcanic origin. Grapes harvested by hand have been transformed into wine with great care and aged in our 700-year-old natural cellar in large wooden barrels. The vines planted on meager terraces, produce a Riesling of a very special style. It reflects the unique terroir with exciting minerality and complex density. On the nose as well as on the palate this Riesling unfolds with precise fruit and mineral structure. A wine with great character and ageing potential.
Ried Zöbinger Heiligenstein
With its very rare geological formation, Ried Zöbinger Heiligenstein is one of the best Riesling sites in the winegrowing region. The Zöbing Perm is a meager, reddish and weathered desert sandstone with conglomerates of volcanic components from the Permian period (270 million years old). The vineyards are located in a nature protection area. Between the vineyards there are preserved dry grassland areas with rare flora and fauna.
