Vinification Details

The vineyards are on the banks of the River Rhine. Harvest takes place in September and the grapes are picked by machine. The grapes are destemmed and then crushed. The wine is vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 12-15 degrees for 2-3 weeks to help retain the fresh fruit flavours of the wine. There is no oak ageing.

History

Langguth was founded in 1789 by Franz Wilhelm Langguth. Today, more than 200 years later, the Langguth family owns vineyards in five different continents. The Langguth portfolio caters for a wide spectrum of consumer preferences under the original Langguth brand and also H. Sichel Sohne, traditionally one of the best known names in German wine. Langguth owns the famous Blue Nun brand, Germany's biggest export brand, as well as Erben, Germany's biggest domestic brand and is one of the top 5 wine producers

Regional Information

The vineyards in Germany are mainly planted in the Southwest along the River Rhine. The vineyards for the Blue Nun wine are in the foreground of Langguth's quality. Their philosophy is selection according to the “terroir” principle, which emphasises soil and localised climate. The soil is a combination of weathered slate, loess and loam of the slopes next to the River Rhine.
