Teresa Deufel has Grapes on her Mind — Germany’s most Southerly Winyard produces Organic Natural Wine

200 years ago, wine was grown in the Bavarian Lake Constance region around Lindau. However, in the course of time, fruit cultivation replaced vine cultivation and the winegrowing fell into oblivion.

A good 200 years ago, wine was grown in the Bavarian Lake Constance region around Lindau. However, in the course of time, fruit cultivation replaced vine cultivation and the winegrowing fell into oblivion. In 1975, fruit growers and wine enthusiasts Hannes Deufel and Ludwig Haug begin to revive the grape-growing tradition on the slopes above Lindau.

In 2009, Teresa Deufel, the second generation, takes over responsibility for the winery in one of the highest growing regions in Germany. The young, talented winemaker has completed an apprenticeship as a winemaker, is studying viticultural technology in Veitshöchheim and has completed various internships with renowned winemakers and the German Wine Institute in London. Influenced by her apprenticeship, she is fully committed to organic quality and an ecological approach to the land she is allowed to cultivate and in which she herself is deeply rooted.

The terroir at Lake Constance is characterized by a lot of moisture and therefore also a lot of humus, which in combination with abundant sunshine and cooling wind from the Alps produces fruity notes in the wine.

A visit to Teresa Deufel should definitely be combined with an overnight stay in the estate’s own vacation apartments. Those who have consulted the website beforehand should try to time their visit here with the Rädle (Heuriger), which is only open for a short time, the farm festival with friendly local wineries, or one of the numerous cultural and culinary events.
