For almost 30 years Erik Riffel has been on a mission. He has been looking for the „best“ wine . And for the flint aroma. His favourite spot for that is his local mountain, the “Binger Scharlachberg”. A classified grand cru site with distinct quartzite soil which thanks to Riffel´s pioneering work, is gaining world-wide recognition. With enormous quality consistency as a basis, especially Riesling and Silvaner are produced. The neighbouring vineyards also show class; from Scheurebe to Pinot Noir – ranging from Ortswein and Gutswein or Pet Nat.
What could be the reason for this? “Changing from conventional first to organic, and then in 2012 to biodynamic wine farming has made a dramatic difference” says Eric Riffel. Carolin Riffel, since 2005 Erik´s congenial partner in the wine estate, adds: “ I couldn’t say it any better”. By that she means: A lot of know-how, love and time.
