Just outside the village,to the northwest, on the very edge of the foothills, the Sonnenglanz vineyard faces southeast, at an altitude of 220 to 270 metres. it enjoys a very  favourable microclimate with particularly low rainfall  (hardly more than 500 mm per year). its  soil is rather homogeneous, the subsoil being only made up of tertiary border conglomerate of the Rhinegraben limestone pebbles and interlayered marls of eo-oligocene age develop a rather heavy, well structured and very stony calcareous soil.

Its 32,80 ha are planted principally with  Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer.

Having gained a considerable reputation during the last century, the Sonnenglanz is noted
for the quality of its wines.

The quality of the soil and its marvellous exposure give the wines an attractive gold colour
of great intensity. on the nose, they have a fine, concentrated aroma of ripe fruit. they are generous on the palate, well balanced, with a long finish.
