The winery is located in the municipality of Sulzfeld (Kraichgau area) in the German wine-growing region of Baden. There is documentary evidence that it has been cultivated since 1251, i.e. for more than 750 years. The high quality of the vineyards was recognised as early as the 13th century by the Cistercian monks of Maulbronn Monastery who came from Burgundy. The Ravensburg is the former ancestral seat of the barons Göler von Ravensburg and is one of the most important surviving castles in the Kraichgau. Since 2012, the winery has been owned by "Weingüter Heitlinger & Burg Ravensburg GmbH" in Tiefenbach. The two wineries are completely separate in terms of wine law. They are only ten kilometres apart, and all wines are vinified in the winery in Tiefenbach, which was newly built in 2012. Claus Burmeister, who has also managed the Heitlinger winery since 2009, is the managing director. Daniel Rupp is responsible for the cellar technology.
For me, Lexicon from wein.plus is the most comprehensive and best source of information about wine currently available.Egon Mark
