The Markus Schneider winery in Ellerstadt has always attracted attention with its unusual wine names. Even in the early years, the red wines had names such as ORIGIN and BLACK PRINT. This was not just a sign of a new age for all wines. It was long overdue not only to find new ideas for the creation of the wines, which Markus Schneider succeeded in doing by marrying German and southern European grape varieties. It is not without reason that the Palatinate, with its almost Mediterranean climate, is called the Tuscany of Germany. But a new era had also dawned for the outfit of the wines. As a contrast to the classic, traditional wine labels, his new design hit the mark. Labels with clear statements, large, straight lettering, kept authentic and simple in color and shape, so that the bottle caught the eye on the shelf ... and last but not least, the name of the wines made the viewer more and more curious. Origin is a red wine cuvée from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Portugieser. A successful wine with a permanent place in the range and still enjoying great popularity.
