estate alongside his brother Gregor, who supervises production in the vineyard

limestone, loam, sand and 'muschelkalk' - a calcareous soil with substantial
deposits of fossilised mussel shells. Gregor works to preserve the health and
mineral content of the soils - they use only organic fertilisers, and in 2011
