“To me, the system “FAIR and GREEN” is important because an increasing number of customers from Scandinavia ask for sustainability criteria. An additional decisive argument was the fact, that besides ecological criteria the efficient use of resources is also analysed and aspects such as a good relationship with the staff, fair wages and respectful interaction with each other play a major role.
All these criteria are contained in the system “FAIR and GREEN” which is why I consider this a big progress for my vineyard and the German viticulture.”
The family Philipp Kuhn has according to official documents been settling in Laumersheim since the 17th century.
Philipp Kuhn Senior focused on the vineyards and specialised on a clean production of high quality wines.
Since 1992 Philipp Kuhn Junior, back then only 20 years old, has been responsible for the viticulture and vinification related operations
of the business and proved to be successful – as a number of national and international awards proves.
The vineyard with a size of 25 hectares is located in Laumersheim and surrounding villages: Grosskarlbach and Dirmstein. Already in the 18th century, Johann Philipp Bronner attested very good conditions for viticulture for this region in his siting catalogue.
Along with remarkably low yields, 100 percent manual grape harvest and an almost Mediterranean climate of the Palatinate and our distinctive limestone – loess soil, high class wines of a high international standard are produced.
Motivated by tradition and passion Philipp Kuhn is a true craftsman when it comes to wine.
The variety of grapes is distinguished between 50 percent red and 50 percent white types. 99 percent of the wines are dry. Only in especially suitable years sweet wines are produced.
