Ruppertsberg

Wine-growing Area – The Palatinate

Wine and forest, mediterranean climate and joie de vivre, that is the best way to describe the land and the people. Ruppertsberg is situated in the middle of vineyards on the edge of the Palatine forest. It is a picturesque village with around 1400 inhabitants who had been identified for centuries with wine growing. You can enjoy the scenery by cycling on well developed and signposted cycle tracks. Places of interest in the surrounding countryside – the biggest wine barrel of the world in Bad Dürkheim (about 8 km) – the castle of Hambach in Neustadt (about 15 km) – the city of Speyer with cathedral and technical museum (about 25 km)

The Wine-Growing
Estate

Ruppertsberg – in the heart of Mittelhaardt

Being a family business we cultivate in the very heart of Mittelhaardt, on the best sites of Rittersberg, about 13 hectares of vineyards. Wine-growing in harmony with nature, strengthening of the natural resistance of the vine and biological pesticides are integral parts of our philosophy. The result of all these factors is a healthy harvest with a distinct flavour. Our ultramodern cellar technology makes possible the gentle and individual development of the wines in a manner that the characteristics of the soil, the quality of the grapes and the vintage year can be effectively experienced and appreciated in the wine glass.

Rotwein

Red Wines

In order to be able to produce high-grade red wines, we only use healthy and fully ripe grapes. Already in summer, we reduce the yield in order to improve the quality of the grapes. By using selective handpicking methods, only fully ripe grapes are used for the preparation of the red wine. The most modern Masher fermenting technology enables us to obtain the best possible colour and aroma which reveal the quality of the wine and the soil. The storage in small oak barrels completes the ripeness of our red wines. The result, full-bodied and warm red wines.
Our recommendation:
Decant our red wines at least 2 hours before. The introduction of oxygen brings about the optimal blossom of the fragrances. The result, the complete enjoyment of the red wine.

Rosewein

Rosé

These wines are produced of red grapes. These grapes are pressed immediately after the vintage and that way little of the colouring will be dissolved. The result is a colour which ranges from a light red to a colour similar to the one of a white wine. By applying a gentle vinification in chilled stainless steel tanks we’ll obtain a fruity and a fresh wine.
Drinking temperature: 8 – 10 ºC

Sekt

Sparkling Wine

We only use exquisite wines for the production of sparkling wines. By accomplishing the second fermentation in a bottle (bottle fermentation) and storaging the sparkling wine for at least nine months with brewer’s yeast the sparkling wines preserve their fine sparkling.
In case of the Secco production, by contrast, carbonic acid will be added to the wine.
Drinking temperature: 6 ºC
