VDP: What is so special about your winery?

Felix Graf Adelmann: Apart from the wines and a few other things: 722 years of wine-growing tradition at Schaubeck Castle, a spacious park and castle complex from the 13th century. Five Adelmann generation at Schaubeck Castle, who succeeded hunchbacked relatives. Three VDP.GROSSE LAGE® monopole vineyards: OBERER BERG, GÖTZENBERG & SÜSSMUND. Over 60 percent of the vineyards are steep slopes. Organic certified WITHOUT wearing Birkenstocks – no offense! A 400-year-old vaulted cellar.

VDP: What is your winery philosophy?

Felix Graf Adelmann: Less philosophising ABOUT wine than philosophising WITH it.

VDP: For what wine style do you strive?

Felix Graf Adelmann: Lemberger rules! Style for white: with appropriate oak. Red can be muscular, but never without brain. In other words: elegance tumps pure power.

VDP: Which of your wines would you recommend to someone who doesn't yet know your winery – as an introduction, so to speak?

Felix Graf Adelmann: The blends “Der Weisse Loewe”  and “Herbst im Park”.

“ELEGANCE TRUMPS PURE POWER.”

VDP: Of which wine are you particularly proud?

Felix Graf Adelmann: Papa loves all his children.

VDP: Why did you become a vintner? Was there a special experience?

Felix Graf Adelmann: Bells and whistles. Wine is super. And DIY is all the rage!

VDP: What are your next goals?

Felix Graf Adelmann: Adapting the perception of the region to the actual quality of the wines. We are the region with the greatest potential to yet be discovered!

VDP: How do you combine tradition and innovation?

Felix Graf Adelmann: I agree with Gustav Mahler, “Tradition is not the worship of ashes, but the passing on of fire.

DER WEISSE LOEWE

VDP: Why should people visit your winery?

Felix Graf Adelmann: The castle and the surrounding park are certainly worth a visit, because we inhabit and preserve them with great dedication. The surrounding landscape and vineyards also invite you to take a stroll.

VDP: If your wine were music, what would it be?

Felix Graf Adelmann: Maybe Nils Frahm: classical background with its own style and a pinch of madness.
