WHO WE ARE
The people who work on the wine estate are the fundament of a functioning ecosystem in and around the vineyards. Their strengths can be seen in every vine and in every blossom, and thus make up the core of Domäne Lilienberg.
Winemaking is in my blood. I learn from the vineyard and store the acquired knowledge in barrels. I leave nothing to chance. With caution and vision, I create the organic framework from vine to barrel, where nature can do its job.
Grape harvesters, carriers of an ancient culture and keepers of an ecosystem, a fulfilling role which was tailored to us and which we invest with love and passion. We are the vineyard, the vine, the grape and every drop which is pressed. We are Domäne Lilienberg.
OUR VINEYARD WORKERS PROVIDED BY NATURE
The air between the alder grove and the vines flickers and shimmers – useful creatures are important little helpers. Green lacewings, predator mites, (bumble)bees, ladybirds, salamanders, bats and hawks: all of them help to ensure the well-being of the flowers, herbs and fruits. Together, they make up a natural cycle in the vineyard ecosystem.
FLORA & FAUNA
A mixture of exclusively selected herbs – such as lupin and clover – and cow or earthworm humus mobilize the root systems below ground in the vineyards. Each vine develops its own defences from a very young age, flourishes thanks to ‘soft pruning’ and produces healthy, juicy grapes.
