Fun Facts: The Saumagen is the estate's crown jewel: four hectares planted on a hill of limestone, chalk and marl. Interestingly, it gets its name of Saumagen because the shape of the vineyard resembles a sow's stomach. Saumagen also happens to be the specialty sausage of the area, with the stuffing going into said stomach, resulting in a delicious, crispier skin than most regular sausage casings.
Appellation: Pfalz
Winemaking: After being hand-harvested, the grapes are pressed outside in the courtyard. The juices settle in stainless steel tanks and then are racked by gravity into the underground cellar's myriad of casks. There is no temperature control in the cellar, and fermentation can take weeks or months. Malolactic fermentation is not monitored: it either happens or doesn’t. The wines stay on their lees for about eight months and a light filtration is performed before bottling.
