In earlier times, rose bushes were placed in front of each row of vines, as their leaves are particularly susceptible to mildew (mushroom) and so you could see when special mindfulness was required by the winemaker, because once the rose petals are white, it doesn’t take long that the rose petals are also vine leaves become sick.

Our Pinot Noir (type 777 from Burgundy) has been growing on this completely south-facing slope with a lot of coarse rock since 2001 and Pinot Noir (type 943 from Burgundy) grows a few steps further on the second Rosenberg vineyard from us. The Rosenberg is therefore the good nursery for our diva and a diva: “should rain red roses…”!
