The winery is located in the community of Schliengen-Mauchen (Markgräflerland area) in the German Baden
wine region. The old-established Heilbronn family Lämmlin has been growing wine here since the twelfth century. After living in exile in Switzerland during the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648), the family settled in Mauchen in the middle of the 17th century and began to grow wine again. The marriage of Lieselotte Lämmlin and Gerhard Schindler sen. resulted in the present company, which is now managed by Gerd Schindler jun. Since 1862, the Mauchen inn "Zur Krone", which was leased to the Cassier couple, has also been family-owned
The vineyards comprise 13.5 hectares of vineyards in the individual sites Frauenberg
and Sonnenstück (Mauchen) in our own possession. They are planted with the red wine varieties Spätburgunder (60%) and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as the white wine varieties Gutedel, Weißburgunder, Grauburgunder, Müller-Thurgau, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Scheurebe. The vineyard is consistently cultivated according to principles, with no use of synthetic pesticides and artificial fertilizers, and rejection of the extensive use of copper. Grapes are purchased from a further six hectares, whereby the suppliers are obliged to refrain from using herbicides
in any way. However, these wines are vinified separately. The own wines are matured in stainless steel tanks, large wooden barrels and barriques. The red wines are fermented spontaneously. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced.
