Good wine and good food are our passions; hiking together through the vineyards, tasting the grapes and touching the leaves on the vines is what gives us joy. Cooking together and enjoying authentic wines motivates us constantly to keep working on our wines. Family has been the hub of the winery for many decades and family is still the centre of the estate today.
We are the seventh generation in a long line of vintners. We have made it our quest to get back to our roots: rediscovering the unique position our vineyards hold in the Mittelhaardt region and unlocking their full potential. The conversion of the estate to bio-dynamic production methods and the excitement our wines generate in markets throughout the world are the pillars of our work.
It is the 19th century. The cousins Johann Martin and Prof. Dr. Louis Häusser regularly met at Weingut Buhl in Deidesheim to discuss the democratic ideas of the times. But not only… Probably inspired by the surroundings as well as the local wine, they soon decided to purchase a vineyard of their own, thereby laying the cornerstone of today’s estate. Henriette Häusser, a granddaughter of the founder, married Eduard Christmann.
The estate is named after their son, Arnold Christmann. To put it another way: passion and creativity have been part of our history from the outset – and ever since. To this today, the estate has been in the hands of the Christmann family, now in the 7th generation, and the name still stands for top growths that are second to none.
