VDP: What is so special about your winery?

Jonas Freimuth: Because our modern estate building has an expansive view over the Rhine Valley, our monopole vineyard ‘Goldene Luft’ is located in the famous Roter Hang in Nierstein in Rheinhessen, and because of our joy of experimentation in winemaking!

VDP: What is your winery philosophy?

Jonas Freimuth: Hmm. A quote from the band Kettcar that currently motivates me repeatedly is: ‘Someday there will somehow be another word for never.’

 

VDP: For which wine style do you strive?

Jonas Freimuth: Most of our wines are clear and have a steely aroma. Differentiations result from cold maceration, whole cluster fermentation, mash fermentation for white wine grapes, maturation in small oak barrels, and by leaving some wines unfiltered. Something I really like is Sauvignon Blanc.

VDP: Which of your wines would you recommend to someone who doesn’t yet know your winery – as an introduction, so to speak?

Jonas Freimuth: Geisenheim Riesling Alte Reben - a powerful VDP.ORTSWEIN with nervy acidity, minerality and depth.

 

“OUR 2018 ROTER RIESLING TROCKENBEERENAUSLESE IS TRULY A RARITY.”

VDP: Of which wine are you particularly proud?

Jonas Freimuth: Of our Roter Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese from 2018. It’s truly a rarity.

VDP: Why did you become a vintner?

Jonas Freimuth: Here I have the opportunity to create something of my own and have creative freedom. I can also work in a wide variety of areas: viticulture, wine chemistry, IT, marketing and communication, building and equipment technology, personnel management, wine law and EU regulations ... the field of activity changes several times a day and new know-how is a constant demand. Exciting!

VDP.ORTSWEIN

After studying industrial engineering, I worked in Singapore for six months. My studies and my work in industry were an important step for me to look at the wine industry and the family winery from the outside. Only in this way, can I claim today to have made a voluntary and conscious decision for my profession – with all its advantages and disadvantages. Today I appreciate having a circle of friends both inside and outside the wine industry.

 

VDP: Do you have role models or mentors?
Jonas Freimuth: My father as a winemaker, my wife for her persistently positive attitude toward life, and my math professor for his structure and accuracy.
VDP: What are your next goals?
Jonas Freimuth: The renovation of the tasting rooms and wine shop.
