Winemaking Approach





Producer Information: Weingut Rudolf Furst

Weingut Rudolf Fürst has a long tradition. The Franconian family Fürst can document their history as winegrowers back to 1638. When Paul and Monika Fürst took over the winery in 1979, they built today’s estate buildings on the outskirts of the village.

Riesling and Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) thrive in the weathered colored sandstone soils. Spätburgunder in particular has been cultivated in these iron-rich soils for centuries. The work in the vineyard focuses on low-impact methods, reduced yields, meticulous canopy management and staged selection passes. Those efforts, followed by gentle processing in the cellar and long maturation in wood, serve as a guarantor of the high quality of the wine. It's this type of commitment that earned the 2012 Schlossberg Spätburgunder special praise from the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung"as the 2014 Red Wine of the Year.
