The estate, which originally belonged to the St. Lamprecht (Palatinate) monastery and later to Heidelberg University, was taken over in 1754 by Jakob Bergdolt.
The vineyard’s tradition is now being continued in the 8th and 9th generation by Rainer and Carolin Bergdolt. The old family property lies in the beautiful Palatinate wine-growing village of Duttweiler, close to the town of Neustadt an der Weinstraße. The vineyard is a member of the Association of German Prädikat Wine Estates (VDP) and of the German Barrique-Forum. The 24 hectares of the vineyard are cultivated following the guidelines of ecological wine-growing. Bergdolt has long made a name for itself as a producer of highquality Weissburgunder, its reputation reaching far beyond the borders of the Palatinate. But Riesling is also on great form here. Moreover, Carolin Bergdolt and her life partner, the designer Magnus Mewes, have found a fascinating enhancement to their work in the vineyard, combining wine with design.
