The Dr. Heyden estate is relatively “young” by German standards. It was founded in 1999 by Dr. Karl Heyden, his wife, Anita, and their two sons, Frank and Harry. Frank studied at the famed Geisenheim Viticultural. Institute and today leads operations. His winemaking style is very focused on sustainable agriculture, and although he hasn’t obtained certification, Frank is farming organically and practicing polyculture in the vineyards.
