Rings

Rings estate is based at Freinsheim in the Rheinpfalz and is run by two brothers, Steffen and Andreas Rings who, after taking over from their father in 2001, concentrated 100% on wine rather than the mix of vineyards and orchards, and decided to be totally quality driven.

They currently have 28 hectares of vines which they are expanding and they have a total commitment to top quality. Plantings are split between red and white, and between Riesling and Pinot varieties. Their main vineyards are around Freinsheim, Kallstadt and Ungstein, including the famous Saumagen vineyard. Soils are mainly sandy, loess and gravel with chalk and clay, viticulture is carried out in as eco-friendly a way as possible. In the winery, both stainless steel and wood are used depending on the wine with the top wines given extended ageing before release. They are widely recognised as one of the shooting stars of the German wine scene and were admitted to the prestigious VDP organisation in 2016.

Vintage guide

The warmest year on record, 2022 has produced some super results. The wines of 2021 are lighter in style and more aromatic with evident acidity compared with the previous two vintages. 2020 saw a warm summer, giving ripeness, while a prolonged harvest has given freshness and perfect quality fruit. The 2019s show wonderful rapier-like style, good weight and depth, yields are lower than the generous 2018 vintage. “A glorious vintage” said one grower, amongst many superlatives bandied about for 2018. For the first time in 10 years growers were truly happy with the quantity and the quality. The resulting wines are pure, rich, aromatic, and show a fine acidity. An early harvest following frost earlier in the season meant 2017 produced excellent light, fruity wines with great finesse. Weather conditions were tricky in 2016 and growers had to earn their stripes; the early season was wet, which reduced yields, followed by a hot summer with cool nights bringing excellent aromatics but with wines a little lighter than 2015. The brilliant 2015 vintage took place in ideal conditions and produced wonderfully ripe wines in all styles. Kabinetts are a bit short in quantity, but the dry wines especially are very approachable. 2014 saw a good crop of light, well-balanced wines with well integrated acidity.
