Dr. Crusius

Some 400 years ago, the Crusius family settled in Traisen. The old estate buildings, which are still the core of the present estate, were built in 1888. Much has happened since then. Hans Crusius converted a mixed family farm into a wine estate in the 1950s. It comprised 7.5 hectares (18.5 acres) of vines. By planting new vineyards and acquiring others, Dr. Peter Crusius succeeded in expanding the estate’s holdings to 20 hectares (49 acres), planted primarily with Riesling (55%), Pinot Blanc (35%), Pinot Noir and other Pinots. Some 70 percent of the vines are in classified top sites, such as the spectacular Traiser Bastei or the very steep Schlossböckelheimer Felsenberg. It is from these sites that Peter Crusius regularly produces his finest wines, which increasingly number among the best of the region.
