The Münzberg winery, which is managed by the Keßler family, is enthroned on the mountain of the same name. The winery has been mentioned several times by well-known magazines like Gault & Millau, falstaff or Eichelmann.
Wine as it comes from the mountain
The Münzberg winery sees its wines as an expression of nature. Even though it is processed in the cellar, the winemaker's only task is to preserve the characteristics of the grape and to intervene as little as possible. Located in the winegrowing village of Godramstein not far from Landau, the vineyards sit amidst hills and orchards on theMünzberg, which got its name from the discovery of Roman coins. The Keßler family has tended the vineyards for 3 generations. The grandfather Jakob acquired a parcel of land on the Münzberg at the end of the 19th century, and today his grandson Lothar is responsible for the estate, whose headquarters he moved to the Münzberg in 1974.
A large selection of the best sites
Besides some first sites like:
the Münzberg winery produces some high-quality wines from their Große Lage, whose name the winery bears. Besides Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay are cultivated, the red varieties are represented by Dornfelder and Pinot Noir. In addition to white and red wines, the portfolio also includes rosé, sparkling wine, champagne and various brandies.
In line with their philosophy, the Keßlers also see their cellar technology only as an extension of nature. Accordingly, the white wines are vinified exclusively in temperature-controlled steel tanks in order to preserve their freshness and liveliness. Red wines are aged in wooden barrels, and for those wines with which it harmonizes, the aging is shifted to barrique. The barriques at the winery Münzberg are made of Palatinate oak, in contrast to the typical French barrels.
