Run by brothers Ulrich and Wolfgang Luckert and their families, Luckert is located in Sulzfeld am Main, in the German wine-growing region of Franconia. Purchased in the 1970s, the winery is situated in the Zehnthof, a former tithe house in the historical centre of the town, built in 1558.
Farming organically (certified since 2009), the Luckerts cultivate 17 hectares of vineyards on shell and limestone soils, and grow all four Silvaner varieties: yellow, green, blue and red. All their vineyard plots are located exclusively in Sulzfeld, and include the small Creutz vineyard, one of the oldest producing vineyards in all of Germany, which is planted with ancient vines dating back to 1875. In the cellar, fermentations are slow, cool, and natural, with elevage in neutral wood. All the wines go through malolactic and are bottled unfined. They are always fresh, with an elegant lightness and tension coupled with layers of deep flavours.
