Welcome to WEINGUT KLAUS ZIMMERLING, where ART and WIne meet in a unique way. Two professions, two passions that touch the soul.
Since 1992 are we, KLAUS ZIMMERLING and MALGORZATA CHODAKOWSKA living here and preserving the great gift of nature, the perfectly south-facing wineyard Rysselkuppe which reminds of a step pyramide.
Surrounded by vines lies the artist‘s workshop where subtle sculptures are created from rough logs. The graceful female figures can be found as an anually chancing label on the winebottles and in the cellar, where they protect the divine beverage.
The estates vineyard site PILLNITZER KÖNIGLICHER WEINBERG has a size of 4 hectares. On weathered granite the varieties Riesling, Grauburgunder, Weißburgunder, Kerner, Gewürztraminer and Traminer flourish.
Respect for nature implied for me working without sythetic peticides or herbicides right from the beginning. The winegrowing-region of Saxonie with its extreme conditions offers challenges an a chances. By consequently reducing the yield in the wineyard and taking risks and beeing patient in the cellar it is possible to produce distinctive, high-quality wines full of character which has been honored by admission to the VDP in 2010.
