This winemaker is known for having old vines, 60 - 70 years old, on the most southerly exposed stretch of the Thörnicher Ritsch. From here, they make elegant relatively light wines, from spontaneous fermentation and storage in steel / cement tanks. They have a philosophy of selling the wines when they are ripe, which is why it is possible to find old ripe spätlese and auslese. In 2017, nephew Julin Ludes came to the place and has now taken over the production from Hermann Ludes.

General grape descriptions


Riesling is grape from the Alsace region (France), Germany and Austria but Germany is the largest producer in the word of Riesling wines,  which goes from the dry wines to sweet. This grape is cultivated in warm or cold climates and produces high-quality wines witch evolve well over the years. They are very aromatic wines and with pronounced acidity. Riseling wines with sweet characteristics goes well with spicy food as Indian and Thai cuisine. The dried Riesling  goes well with slightly fat meats like the duck. Most present aromas: lima, green apple, beeswax, jasmine and gasoline.
