The Spitalerhof wine basics
Our vineyard and wine cellar are the domain and workplaces of our winemaker, Michael. And there is plenty to do before our wine makes it to the bottle! Every grape variety wants to be planted in its favourite place in our 1.8 hectare vineyard and then needs lots of love and attention before it really produces sweet grapes. Our - in some cases - ancient vine varieties - including the Sylvaner variety, “Sepps alte Rebe” (Sepp’s ancient vine), which were planted by our grandfather - are just as much a part of the history and identity of our winery as our own wines, which ultimately are obtained from them.
