WINE LEGENDS UNDER THE BANNER OF THE STORK – SINCE 1268
AT 750 YEARS, THE OLDEST START-UP IN THE WORLD.
From forest to wine On top of the Klosterbergfelsen, situated near the edge of the Black Forest, on the “negelsbrauner Forst,” they planted Pinot noir vines for the first time, which were brought from their mother monastery in the Duchy of Burgundy. It was the cornerstone for the viticulture in the region. Up until now, the Cistercian nuns are living nearby: www.abtei-lichtenthal.de
The NÄGELSFÖRST stork is making its elegant rounds. Above the organized sea of vineyards. Cistercian nuns recognized the perfect location and climate in 1268. A viticulture legend is born.
The Black Death, Thirty Years’ War, looting, as well as other trials and tribulations did not spare NÄGELSFÖRST – nevertheless, the spirit of peace and god-fearing serenity has never left this place. Moreover, it gave strength. For the production of only the most beautiful wines.
We foster and care for the precious vines with passion. We create vigorous premium wines with vibrant acidity, vintage after vintage. Elegant wines of enthusiasm.
