New jewel on the Saar
The Saar, a tributary of the Mosel, is known for its exquisite Rieslings and a long rich history. Wineries often look back on generations of viticulture. So, it is all the more exciting when newcomers draw attention to themselves. The Cantzheim winery has been doing this since 2017 through both its wines and an extraordinary architectural project. Monks used to brew beer in the historic manor house from 1740. Today, fine Riesling from Anna and Stephan Reimann is produced here.
Together with the Swiss architect Max Dudler, the winemaker couple renovated the ensemble in accordance with the building’s heritage status and added an Orangerie and a modern Remise. "The Orangerie is an architectural masterpiece", said the jury.
