Site: Kirchberg is the heart of the "Kleine Kalmit". The "Kleine Kalmit" is a little hill (272m) that was formed during the Tertiary and the sinking of the Upper Rhine Rift. The area around the Kleine Kalmit Hill in the Palatinate is called the classical square mile of geology, because it consists of a unique combination of rock. The soil is extremely calcareous. The Kirchberg is exposed to the southwest and it is a very old terraced vineyard. In this vineyard we do almost all work by hand.

Wine: Clear, juicy fruit, fresh acidity, compact salty, fine minerality, cool smokiness and great potential.
