The Lingenfelder family has followed a hand-offs approach in winemaking since 1520. Rainer 13th and Georg 14th generation Lingenfelder continue the uninterrupted family tradition. They are committed to making wines respecting the land they lived off for 5 centuries and the local traditions that provide guidance for the authenticity and uniqueness of their wines.
A prolific, relatively early ripener, Dornfelder produces wine far deeper in color than is typical of German reds. In fact, it was initially bred (1955, in Württemberg) to serve as a blending wine to improve the color of pale reds. Today it is prized on its own as a fragrant, full-bodied, complex wine with a fairly tannic acidity.
