Saarstein Castle

The winery is located in the municipality of Serrig (Saar area) in the German Moselle growing region. It was founded in 1828 by a head forester Ebenteuer and sold one generation later to the shipping entrepreneur Hansen. His grandson built the imposing estate building on the Saarstein and ran the transport company in Trier from there. In 1906, the construction of a villa, which today serves as headquarters, was completed on the heights of the Saarstein, from whose terrace one can enjoy a breathtaking view over Serrig and the Saar valley. The Second World War with the construction of the Westwall in Serrig changed the situation dramatically. Only one administrator lived on the estate, who had to vacate the house for military purposes. In 1956 the estate was sold to Dieter Ebert. Together with cellar master Erwin Hoffmann, he made sure that the potential of the vineyards was used again and the estate was restored to its former status. Since 1994, the estate has been managed by Christian Ebert, who had already been responsible for the cellar since 1989, and his wife Andrea. Like his father, he is practicing a "traditional, but also nature-oriented and nature-preserving" viticulture
