Nature is the role model for father and daughter vintners Horst and daughter Sandra Sauer. Working with the terroir on their precipitous sun-drenched slopes near Würzburg, they carefully tend eight grape varietals including the classics Riesling, Silvaner, and Müller-Thurgau.
Vineyards encompass the strikingly beautiful sites of Escherndorfer Lump, a southerly-facing site rich in limestone soil and protected from north winds and east-facing Escherndorfer Fürstenberg.
The driving force behind Horst and Sandra’s winemaking is the wish to create wines that quietly yet powerfully tell a story about their environment. As such, their wines possess lovely minerality and good aging potential.
Horst Sauer joined the VDP in 2001. They produce 190,000 bottles a year.
