Schlossgut Diel

Few could have foreseen two centuries ago that Peter Diel's acquisition of Baron von Dalberg's manor, including Burg Layen, would serve as such a powerful and enduring success story. Now under Armin Deal's watchful eye, the estate currently cultivates exclusively Riesling and Pinot varieties across its 22 hectares. Daughter Caroline, a Geisenheim graduate with extensive experience abroad, has assumed an increasingly active role in daily operations. She draws on the council of Christoph Friedrich, an experienced enologist, in both the vineyard and the cellar, where the estate pursues primarily organic techniques. The medieval castle ruins and artistically designed cellar alone are worth the visit. While dry and naturally sweet Rieslings are the estate's focus, they also produce exceptional white and red Pinot still wines, as well as artisanal sparkling wines using traditional bottle fermentation.
