There are not many wineries in the world that can trace the owner’s roots in the area back to 1057, but Castell can proudly make that claim. With the first mention of vineyards dating back to 1224 and with documented plantings dating to 1266, Castell has been at the forefront of winemaking in Franken for over 745 years.

Castell planted the first Silvaner “Austrian” cuttings in 1659. The approach of using the unique terroir of their 175 acres creates a portfolio of Silvaner wines unparalleled across the wine world. Key to this diversity are the site-specific plantings which highlight the complexity and age-worthiness of this most versatile of grapes.

The name honors the date of the first Silvaner planting in Franken. Shades of pale gold glimmer in the glass as enchanting to the eye as the complex aromas are to the nose; a rich range of ripe yellow pear, peach, baked lemons and candied ginger peel together with the roasty, toasty notes of barrel aging. Creamy on the dry palate with a racy acidity and equal parts momentum and concentration. Beneath the barrel influence lies the classic Silvaner complexity and depth marked with plenty of curves and contours. A wine that rewards a bit of patience, and a large-bowled glass. Drink 2023 – 2033

The complexity will reward a pairing of savory mushrooms dishes, hearty venison medallions with fruit sauce; anything with figs or a finely spiced potato gratin.
