In 1520, Anstatt Lingenfelder was born in a small village on the Hardt foothills in the Pfalz. A region that has a grape-growing and winemaking history dating back to Roman times. Rainer 13th and Georg 14th generation Lingenfelder continue the uninterrupted family tradition. They are committed to making wines respecting the land they lived off for 5 centuries and the local traditions that provide guidance for the authenticity and uniqueness of their wines.
Rainer and Georg are aware, however, that:
“Tradition is not to preserve the ashes but to pass on the flame”
Gustav Mahler said it; Thomas Morus is said to have coined it
