Horst Sauer

Wines for a personal wish, unique occasions, and special moments that don’t happen every day. To create such wines, and thus enable nature’s diversity to shine, is what Horst Sauer, an exceptional wine-grower, has been trying to do for many years – with great success. His Franken estate lies in Escherndorf, a wine village surrounded by the Main River and the vine-clad hillside of the top-notch site Lump. During the past few decades, Horst Sauer, in particular, has seen to it that Escherndorfer Lump is once again respectable. He is now assisted by his daughter Sandra, who is increasingly involved in cellar operations. This is where tremendous dry white wines are produced, not only from Silvaner, but also Riesling. And the lusciously sweet specialties of this estate have long enjoyed a sterling reputation.
