Winery Am Lump

The winery is located in the community of Escherndorf (area Maindreieck) in the German wine-growing region of Franken. It has been in family ownership for many generations. In 2001 Paul Sauer handed over the management to his son Albrecht. In 1977 he moved into the newly built manor house directly below the Escherndorfer Lump site. The vineyards comprise 11 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Berg, Fürstenberg and Lump (Escherndorf), as well as Sonnenleite (Dettelbach). They are planted with the white wine varieties Silvaner, Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Blanc, Bacchus, Scheurebe, Rieslaner and Kerner, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Black Riesling, Portugieser and Domina. The work is done according to the guidelines of natural viticulture and wine growing. Special emphasis is placed on low yields through consistent pruning, selected harvesting and healthy grape material. The red wines are traditionally aged in large wooden barrels. Noble distillates (marc, fruit) are also marketed, as well as sparkling wines (Secco) and bottle-fermented sparkling wines. The winery is a member of the two winegrowers' associations Fränkische Gewächse and Franken & Wein.
