From the very best vineyards in Germany come the Grosse Lage wines. Our best of Riesling and Silvaner are bearers of culture directly from the famous and dramatic terroir of the Stettener Stein.

Ludwig’s very own sparkling’s crafted from Silvaner and classic pinot varieties rely on the method of traditional bottle fermentation – the supreme discipline for ambitious, sophisticated sparkling wines. We harvest our grapes specifically for our sparkling collection and a lot of care goes into the composition of their base wines. Body, structure and a subtle fruity acidity are important for later development of quality.
For generations we have been distilling finest house brandys from local fruit varieties. We carefully select only the ripest and most aromatic fruit for fermentation and subsequent slow distillation. All of our fruit schnapps are stored for at least 2 years in stoneware vats while the barrique schnapps mature for several years in small new wooden barrels. Our trester schnapps is exclusively made from the winery’s own juicy grape trester of silvaner and pinot varieties.
