Location: Leinsweiler, Germany
The Siegrist Winery is located in Leinsweiler, a picturesque village of 400 inhabitants in the southern Pfalz. The 1,200-year-old community is tucked beneath the historic town hall built in 1619 and is also home to the Slevogt-Hof, the summer residence of the German Impressionist painter Max Slevogt.
Leinsweiler is blessed with a mild climate and plentiful sunshine that lets even almond, fig and lemon trees thrive. Nature has meant it well with Leinsweiler and created excellent conditions for grape cultivation. Aside from the warm climate, the area’s soils consist mostly of lime, marl, loess-clay and decomposed sandstone, which are uniquely reflected in the wines made here.
