Hattenheimer Wisselbrunnen
The origin of the site's name is open to theory. On the one hand, Wisselbrunnen could derive from "Wiesel," i.e. weasel, or "Wiese," meaning meadow. Others see an affinity with the Latin "fistula," or pipe(s), in reference to the "Brunnen," or spring, located there. The vineyard lies 100 meters/328 feet above sea level and faces south-southwest, an optimal position for absorbing solar radiation. Wisselbrunnen's light, Tertiary marl soils have a good water balance so that even in very dry years, grapes can ripen extremely well.

Our new price list is available. It’s not merely a list of products and prices printed on a piece of paper – it’s a little magazine. We went to great efforts in preparing the new list. It provides all kinds of information about our vineyard sites, our philosophy, and how we work.

News June / July 2015
We’ve put together a new “pRESSbook.” It’s available immediately as a pdf file or we’ll be happy to send you a hard copy. The pRESSbook is a compilation of the most important opinions, reviews, and critiques about us and our wines. Since the last one was issued, there have been quite a number of new “echoes” – we’re both proud and grateful for this and the fact that our wines have been held in such high esteem in recent years.
