Altenkirch wine estate was founded in 1826 and is situated in the town of Lorch, right at the boundary of the Rheingau, in the middle of World Heritage Middle Rhine. Here, Taunus meets Rhine, creating steep slopes of up to 60%. The wine estate has 15 hectares of steep-sloped vineyards, mostly Riesling, which are cultivated manually and painstakingly. The great diversity of soil around Lorch covers slate, loess and quartzite and forms the base for unique wines.
