Our winery

Matthias und Christian Runkel, Weingut Bischel, Appenheim

Our history

Today, we are the 3rd generation to run our family winery. A few years ago, we began to consistently improve the quality of our wines. More vineyard, less cellar was the most important step. Ecological cultivation, low yields and perfectly ripe grapes are still the recipe today. Since then, we have been able to clearly taste the differences between the individual plots and bring them out more and more.

Origin has become the most important keyword, as it makes all the difference. Our wines should authentically reflect what nature gives us year after year over the course of 365 days.

MILESTONE - On 1 January 2019, we were accepted as a new member of the association of German quality and prädikat-wine estates (Verband Deutscher Prädikats- und Qualitätsweingüter). The VDP is the oldest association of top wineries in the world. 196 wineries have imposed strict quality standards and benchmarks on themselves - they stand for terroir-based and artisanal winemaking.
