The winery in the municipality of Heppenheim is located in the German wine-growing region of Hessische Bergstrasse. It was founded in 1926 by Heinrich and Elisbaeth Freiberger and expanded by their two sons. Today it is run by Heinz senior and Heinz junior Freiberger, already the third generation. The vineyards cover 15.5 hectares of vineyards in the single vineyards of Eckweg, Guldenzoll, Maiberg, Schlossberg, Steinkopf and Stemmler in Heppenheim. Two thirds of the vineyards are planted with Riesling (7.6 ha) and Ruländer (3 ha), as well as Pinot Noir, Müller-Thurgau, Silvaner, Pinot Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Kerner, Chardonnay, Johanniter, Dornfelder and St. Laurent. Natural viticulture is practised. Some of the wines are matured traditionally in large wooden barrels and some in stainless steel tanks. Sparkling wines, semi-sparkling wines, wine brandies, yeast wine brandies, marc brandies and liqueurs are also produced.

In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".
