Florian Fauth, the young, 5th generation winemaker runs his family's estate, Seehof. Seehof is located in Westhofen, a famous wine village in Rheinhessen. The estate possesses three excellent vineyard sites in the heart of Westhofen: Kirchspiel, Morstein and Steingrube.
The area is characterized most notably for the limestone soils which give the wines their glycerin-induced sexiness, and the flair of acidity, a presence strong enough to counter the lavish extract and to keep the wines from feeling gooey or too heavy.
Above all, it is important to Fauth that his wines embody the terroir of Westhofen. He says, "The focus of our philosophy is the wine as a very individual product. Each vine should be clearly reflected in the wine, and none of our wines should be interchangeable."
