Jürgen Ellwanger

The Ellwanger family’s viticultural tradition dates from 1512. In 1949, Gottlob Ellwanger founded the present estate. Under the direction of Jürgen Ellwanger, the estate has steadily grown in size, and became a member of the VDP. Today, the estate and its 25 hectares (61 acres) of vines are in the hands of Jörg and Sylvia, with son Felix. They are committed to tradition, whereby the spirit of innovation and willingness to broaden one’s perspectives are also part of their tradition. They realize that quality is “born” in the vineyard and vineyard is synonymous with nature. For this reason, they cultivate their vineyards as naturally as possible. Their cellar philosophy reads:  Wine behaves like a precious stone. The more you polish it, the less it is worth.
