Traditionally there were small mixed farms in the area, but they always grew vines. In 1975 Matthias Beck took over from his father and started to focus on wine only, they started with 5 ha. Today the Beck estate has 15 ha of vines. In 2001 Judith took over responsibility for the cellar after gaining experience in France, Italy and Chile.
Dark ruby with a violet rim, fresh and animating aromas, pronounced sour cherry-fruit, Christmas spices, cinnamon and cloves, juicy on the palate with soft tannins and elegant spiciness in the finish.
