Located in the small community of Grosskarlbach, Pfalz, Germany the Lingenfelder family has been producing wine for 13 generations. Owner and winemaker Rainer-Karl Lingenfelder takes a minimalist approach to winemaking indigenous yeasts are used, malolactic fermentation is blocked and he doesn’t fine nor stabilize his wines. Rainer uses a few large 100-year-old barrels to age some of his wines. These neutral barrels no longer impart any oak flavor but lend texture and a slight creaminess. He also uses some small barriques for the Spatburgunder. Most of the oak barrels are made with German oak. The 30 acre estate is planted with Riesling (40%), Spatburgunder (20%), Scheurebe (10%) with additional parcels of Muller Thurgau, Dornfelder, Silvaner, Kerner and Portugieser.
