The Kirchspiel site opens toward the Rhine like an amphitheater. Its southern and southeastern exposure protects the vineyards from cold westerly winds and accounts for the excellent microclimate of the vineyard.
The soil structure is similar to that of the Mostein site. It is marked by clayish marl interspersed with limestone as well as loam, leading to Rieslings labeled with the appellation KIRCHSPIEL with their unmistakable character and depth.
Intensive vineyard maintenance throughout the year, low yields and an uncompromising selection of bunches -by hand- lay the foundation for wines of high quality.
In the cellar, the grapes and must are handled very gently. For the most part the wines ferment in traditional, old oak casks.
