The success story of Lemberger
is remarkable for several reasons. On the one hand, for a long time, the very old variety was not trusted at all to produce the qualities we experience today. And for another, Lemberger
has so far been grown almost exclusively in Württemberg
, an area that is unfortunately not taken entirely seriously by discerning wine drinkers to some extent even today.
As one can imagine from these circumstances, the geological conditions here are extremely varied. The vineyards range from 50 to around 700 metres above sea level; the soils of the 16 municipalities are dominated by limestone, granite or slate, depending on the location, but they also keep changing within the zones.
