Weingut Horst Sauer is named after its owner. Both Horst and his daughter Sandra (who joined the winery in 2004) are winemakers at their 37 hectare estate in Franken – situated near Wurzburg (between Frankfurt and Nuremberg).
Their vineyards are focused around the ‘Erste Lagen’ (prime) sites of Escherndorfer Lump and Escherndorfer Fürstenberg.
Eight different grape varieties are planted, including Riesling, Silvaner and Müller-Thurgau.
The Escherndorfer Lump site is privy to a particularly unique micro-climate. It is an incredible steep south-facing slope offering perfect sun exposure and protection from the viciously cold winter winds which blast in from the north and east, with a top layer of limestone-rich soil.
Escherndorfer Fürstenberg is an east-facing vineyard which borders the Lump site to the east and west.
They also have the exquisite Escherndorf am Lumpen – a ‘Grosse Lage’ vineyard plot (a classification given to the best German vineyard sites) first recorded in 1655. This is on the steepest slopes of the Escherndorfer Lump vineyard where the vines are over 30 years old.
