Benedikt Baltes

Weingut Stadt Klingenberg can look back on more than a century of history. It began in 1912, with the acqusition of the building that formerly housed the prince bishops’ fiscal authorities and the Schlossberg vineyard that belonged to it. The estate also has holdings in excellent sites in the neighboring wine villages of Grossheubach and Rück. In 1955 the estate numbered among the founding members of the VDP.Franken. In the cellar, the current proprietor, Benedikt Baltes, focuses exclusively on preserving the quality achieved in the vineyard. The grapes are harvested 100% by hand and vinified according to traditional practices. Low yields, extended maceration, native oak casks, long maturation in cask, and unfiltered bottling are used to bring forth the unique character of the wines. The entire attention is concentrated on the production of the outstanding Pinot Noir wines.
