The Eymann winery is located in Goennheim, a small town in the heart of the Pfalz region in the southeast of Germany. The vineyards are located on the upper terraces of the Rhine River and were formed during the last ice age. The soil is mainly composed of riverbeds of gravel and sand, and covered with an additional 1-2 m of loess. Loess is characterized by high contents of lime and minerals, which is the basis for the full body of these wines. The vineyards are cultivated using eco-friendly methods and have been certified since 1983 and fully biodynamic since 2006. These methods are believed to be irreplaceable in a long-term sustainable economy.
The winery owns 17 ha (42 acres) of vineyards, with Riesling as the dominant variety, followed by Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris. Given the soil on which they are grown, the wines have particular minerality and well-structured acidity. Most of the wines are fermented in 1200- or 2400-liter barrels, while a smaller portion is fermented in stainless steel containers. Red wines are made using the traditional method, fermented and aged in barrique barrels or Tonneaux barrels from Burgundy.
