VDP classification is based on a clear philosophy: the narrower the origin, the higher the quality!

We award only the very best vineyards our VDP.GROSSE LAGE® designation. Wines from these vineyards shine through their uniqueness and distinctiveness. VDP.ERSTE LAGE® wines are also distinguished by their unparalleled ability to express the essence of a vineyard. VDP.ORTSWEINE come from a village’s best vineyards. VDP.GUTSWEINE are the foundation of our origins-based philosophy and come only from our own vineyards. All wines from our winegrowers bear the VDP.Eagle on the bottleneck – as a trustworthy guarantee for the quality within.
