“Happy land, where wine ripens against the backdrop of the Black Forest…”. Goethe was a man of the senses – and if it hadn’t been Weimar, where else could he, who loved everything beautiful and appreciated a good glass of wine, have found his Arcadia rather than in the Markgräflerland? A lovely landscape steeped in history, where oleander, hibiscus and lemons blossom in southern warmth. Excellent wines that harmonise with exquisite cuisine and invite you to fine wine tastings and traditional festivals. Thermal springs that make the Roman “carpe diem” a pleasant experience. It is also no wonder that the Markgräflerland has always attracted and inspired artists: All the senses draw equally from the abundance of this region, which gives the feeling of being “whole” again – far from all everyday one-sidedness. A “little garden of paradise” (Johann Peter Hebel) – and in the middle of it all: our house – a former vineyard from the 18th century.
