Weinberg Sonnenuntergang

Baden – the „sun island“ of the nation

Welcome to the sun-spoilt wine country of Baden. Here, in the Upper Rhine Valley, surrounded by the mountains of the Odenwald, the Black Forest and the Vosges, there is the provably warmest and sunniest area in Germany. The location combined with a sufficient amount of rainfalls in summer creates a particular feel good climate with Mediterranean flair. 

In almost no other German growing area the vines can grow as good as here, depositing all minerals necessary in the grapes – the best natural preconditions for the production of high-quality wines.
