The Stettener Pulvermächer is among the most picturesque and prized sites in the region. The first verified reference to this richly historical vineyard came in 1650. ‘Pulvermächer’ (powder maker) is an antiquated term for an explosives engineer, and the name derives from the nearby quarry where explosives work was common.

Rugged sandstone soils with significant veins of iron form the core of this west-facing vineyard situated near the Y-burg. The heart of the site is located in the old stone terraces directly beneath the castle and which efficiently capture and store the heat of the day.

Fruit for the Großes Gewächs is carefully hand harvested into small containers and then spontaneously fermented in large wooden barrels.

Founded in 1949 by retired, world-class Gymnast Karl Haidle and now onto its third generation, Weingut Haidle has long been a pioneer and leader in fine-wine production in Württemburg.

Today, the young and energetic Moritz Haidle is in charge of the estate. He is a dedicated organic farmer and a passionate devotee of hip-hop culture. A talented graffiti artist, Moritz is no doubt a radical figure in the Swabian wine scene, uprooting the traditional image of the staid German winzer. His vibrant character and commitment to terroir translate in the pure, focused wines that are emerging from this deep, natural cellar. Specializing in Riesling and Lemberger, Moritz gives the unique slopes of Stetten a chance to speak with nuance and clarity.
