The death of Hereditary Prince Carl Friedrich of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg came "at the worst possible time," according to Henning Brömser, a manager at the Hallgarten winery estate in Lower Franconia.
The Hallgarten winery is one of two estates owned by the late Prince. Speaking to a reporter with the Main Spitze, Brömser said that plans were underway to add a wine cellar and a wine store at Schloss Kleinheubach. At this point, however, Brömser does not know what will happen, but he believes that the rest of the team are "well situated" to continue the work.
The Löwenstein family had run the Hallgarten estate since 1875, but it was Carl Friedrich who established the winery. In 2008, he sold 3700 square meters of land for financial reasons, and maintained only 20 hectares of vineyard. He managed half of the land, and leased the other half to other wineries.
At this time, it is not known who will replace Carl Friedrich. He has two brothers, Hubertus, and Dominik, and a sister, Christina.
