Youthful aromas of white peach, flowers and a hint of vanilla. On the palate, the wine is very present and fresh, paired with salty minerality, blossoms and stone fruit. A complex Pinot Blanc with a lot of potential, which is already a pleasure to drink.


Baden is situated in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, bordering France to the west and Switzerland to the south. It stretches from the northern part of the Black Forest to the northern outskirts of the city of Basel.

Baden is known for its vibrant wine culture, and various wine festivals and events take place throughout the year. These festivals provide an excellent opportunity for locals and visitors alike to taste and enjoy the region’s wines.

Climate & Terroir

The region benefits from a relatively mild climate, thanks to its proximity to the Rhine River and the shelter provided by the Black Forest to the east. The diverse terroir of the region, including various soil types and microclimates, allows for the cultivation of a wide range of grape varieties.


These vines grow on the south and south-west slopes of the Schlossberg in Staufen in Markgräflerland. The soil is characterized by shell limestone and yellow slate. In this exposed location there is a pronounced microclimate, with strong sunshine and cooling winds from the Rhine plain. The wines from the Schlossberg combine strength and freshness, excitement and finesse and, with their silky texture, form one of the estate’s highlights.

Ideal drinking temperature 10 °C.
