The private winery Saaleck Castle was first mentioned in 1298 as a winery of the monastery of Fulda and as one of the oldest wineries in the whole of Franconia.
Today the vines grow in the old vineyards up to 80% steep. Much vineyard work and the entire grape harvest is done by hand. The entire estate has been converted to organic viticulture and bio-certified wines have been exclusively produced since 2013.
The private Saaleck Castle winery is the largest winery in place with its 18.5 hectares. In the so-called “Chateau Schlossberg” excellent red and white wines are grown. In particular, the microclimate within the vineyard wall makes you feel like you are in another world.
The philosophy of family Lange: “The quality of the wine comes from the vineyard and continues in the wine cellar.”
