The winery is located in the municipality of Neustadt-Haardt (area Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße) in the German wine-growing region of the Palatinate
. On December 9, 1600, Kaspar Kaub, imperial master chef at the Hofburg in Prague, received a gift from Emperor Rudolf II. (1552-1612) for his excellent cooking skills. This coat of arms is still worn by the Kaub family, which is demonstrably connected with viticulture in Haardt just a few years later, to this day. Today the family winery is managed by Karl-Heinz Kaub. The vineyards cover five hectares in the locations Bürgergarten
(Haardt), as well as Eselshaut
(Mußbach). They are planted to 60% with the white wine varieties Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Rieslaner, Scheurebe and Gewürztraminer, and to 40% with the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Lemberger (Blaufränkisch
), Acolon, St. Laurent, Cabernet Mitos and Dunkelfelder
We consistently practice environmentally friendly viticulture close to nature with, for example, natural fertilisation and plant protection measures. Quality criteria are careful vine pruning, thinning out of surplus grapes, selective manual harvesting of grapes that ripen as optimally as possible, fast pressing (maximum three hours after harvesting) and strong pre-clarification of the musts. The white wines are fermented in a cool place and matured in steel tanks, mainly dry and semi-dry. The red wines mature after the traditional maceration in large old wooden barrels or at least ten months in barrique. The winery is a member of the three winegrowers' associations Vinissima
, Pro Riesling
and KUW(Kontrolliert umweltschonender Weinbau Pfalz e.V.
