The Riedlin family has tended the vineyards in the town of Laufen in the southern part of Baden since 1656. In 2009 Markus Kuntz-Riedlin had the opportunity to take over the vineyards of his parents and, thus, to continue the centuries-old family tradition, bringing in, as matter of course, his own ambition and expertise of wine making. In addition, Riedlin inherited a distillery adjacent to the Riedlin Estate in Laufen and made a premier spirit labelled RIEDLIN BRILLANT from the wine must.
2010 was the first vintage from Riedlin in generations: a Spätburgunder (Pinot noir) matured in French barrique barrels for 15 months. This limited addition quickly sold out. In vintages to follow, Riedlin released a Rot red wine and a rosé. The label design on the bottle is from a painting by Adolf Riedlin (1892-1969), the famous painter of the Riedlin dynasty.
