The river Rhine has formed the Klettgau region in northern Switzerland since primeval times. Therefore, the vines growing on about 60 hectares around Wilchingen profit from a soil formed by Earth’s history. The Rötiberg vineyard cultivates 32 hectares in this south-facing area, with most of the vines growing on 230 to 250-million-year-old layers of rock.This leaves traces in the wine. But not only the soil structure and the microclimate are responsible for the Rötiberg’s vibrant and fruity wines: the 65 vintners working in the Klettgau region have a close connection to nature, the plants they are growing and the grapes they are harvesting. Among them is the team of the Rötiberg winery.
