Heymann-Löwenstein

Reinhard Löwenstein: “The genesis of our vineyards began 400 million years ago. At that time, the Devonian Period, present-day Europe was in the tropics, south of the equator. Near the shores of the Panthalassic Ocean (‘global ocean’), various sediments of the Old Red Continent collected and mixed with alluvial deposits from the sea. Fine clays and sands, shells, coral banks... These hardened to form slate during supercontinental collisions during the Permian Period. In the course of millions of years, in the wake of earthquakes, volcanic activity and mountain-building, new land formations were created. In the Mosel Valley, slate was uplifted to form the steep cliffs that line the river. What a tremendous feat our ancestors performed in laboriously breaking up the rocks by hand and building walls and terraces. It is a unique man-made landscape. Quasi a sublime medium for for growing vines in the stony soil. There’s a taste of the ‘global ocean’ in every sip of these wines.”
