Odinstal

Making wine so high up here in the Palatinate could have nobody imagined at all in the 1990s. In times of climate change, however, the Odinstal winery, situated at 350 metres above sea level and towering over the town of Wachenheim, is set to make history.

Odinstal is simply about wine, which reflects the DNA of this wonderful place

The winery was acquired in 1998 by the Hensel family, who, together with farm manager and winemaker Andreas Schuhmann, uncompromisingly focus on quality and authenticity. Very delicate wines with subtle aromas are produced here.

The Odinstal winery dispenses with modern cellar technology and strives for agricultural individuality that works in cycles and delivers high-quality wines every year with little intervention. Quite simply, it is all about wine that should reflect the DNA of this monopollage.

The pursuit of agricultural individuality and special wines that nourish body, mind and soul.

Due to the temperatures, the wines mature more slowly and reach very moderate alcohol levels. Other crucial components are the soils, which literally shaped the area due to a volcanic eruption. Mineral basalt, red sandstone, shell limestone and Keuper dominate the rocks.

The wines ferment without temperature control, also undergo spontaneous acid reduction and are minimally sulphurised - so the philosophy is clear. The resulting style is neither loud nor brash, but gripping and long.
