Even the Romans used our region for vineyard-cultivation. Its traces are preserved until today. After Kallstadt´s foundation these traditions have been re-activated and maintained for hundreds of years. A cultural countryside has grown.
Since the 15th century a lion is the landmark of the village. We invite you to taste our wines within the exceptional atmosphere of this highly traditional place.
COMMITTED TO TRADITION
The winemaker family Schuster, which founded the today´s estate in 1841, decided for the “Kallstadter lion” as their emblem and placed it on the estate label.
Under this sign the estate prospered to its today´s size. It trusted in the prestigious countryside – a committing tradition which will be continued by the new owners.
CONTINUITY AND A NEW START
Keeping traditions by renewing them – this is the motto for the new start of the “Weingut am Nil”
WEINGUT AM NIL
In September 2010 the family Dr. Ana and Reinfried Pohl jr. took over the traditional enterprise.
With a clear commitment to the special characteristics of the single vineyards the new estate fits perfectly into the old landscape:
it was named after the historical location “Nil”, which is part of the “Kallstadter Saumagen” (single vinyard in the German Pfalz) today.
A short virtual tour
Since the foundation in the 19th century our estate stands for high quality vine-cultivation. We invite you to take a short virtual tour.
The estate – built in 1841 – is located at the outskirts of the village, close to our vineyards.
THE WINE CELLAR
The foundation of our work.
The cellar rooms of the estate from the 19th century are still used today.
But technically things have developed, in order to give the wines what they need: controlled-doing-nothing. This is the way how it purely develops what started in the vineyards.
Jamie Goode: Wines of the year - German Stars list
From vines over 30 years in age, this is a superb expression of Riesling. Taut and linear with nice purity. Has amazing freshness and a lovely linear acidity. So pure and fresh with brightness and clarity. Just so fine. 95/100

An oasis of peace and quiet among historical vineyards.
We welcome you with seven individually furnished guestrooms which have one special purpose: touch your senses! Be there and slow down – that is our aim.
None of our guest rooms is similar to the others. Every room has got a unique style. But one thing applies to all of them – cosiness.
You won´t find modern designs, forms and colours. We aim to combine tradition with cosiness, value with charm.
FUNCTION TO FEEL COMFORTABLE
Whether modern technical equipment like W-Lan, flat TV or iPod sound system, whether big beds with fluffy duvets and high-class sanitary facilities, we considered everything, in order to make you feel comfortable.
DOWN TO EARTH
The guesthouse on Nil is not dedicated to a group of elite customers but opens the door for every guest.
