"... Andrea and Christoph Schaefer produced a very tiny but oh so breathtaking line-up of wines in the 2021 vintage.

"… The combination of intense flavors and airiness delivered by Willi Schaefer in 2020 is one of the great successes of the vintage! The village wines truly shine through their airy precision, the Kabinett are airy and packed with juicy and ripe acidity. The Spätlese are subtly creamy yet also hugely animating and playful.
