The vineyards are characterized by the volcanic rocks andesite and porphyry. Both originated 280-290 million years ago in the geological era of the Permian and offer an exciting potential for extremely mineral wines.
During the cooling of the volcanic lava, quartzites, the agates, formed during the course of the millennium. Today these agates can still be easily found in the andesite-rich vineyards of our winery.
