“Queen of Red Wines”. As the most important quality red wine grape in a temperate climate, the variety finds ideal conditions on the Herawingert vineyard. The variety was probably already cultivated by the Romans. Charles III brought him from Burgundy to Lake Constance in 884 as “Clävner”. Pinot Noir requires very good wine-growing care, as it tends to rot, especially in damp years.
