Dr. Crusius

In 1576, 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, son of Hans Crusius and current owner of the VDP.Estate, succeeded in expanding the estate’s holdings to 20 hectares (49 acres). Today it is planted primarily with Riesling, Pinot varieties as well as a few red grape varieties. Some two third of the vines grow in classified VDP.GROSSE LAGE® and VDP.ERSTE LAGE® sites, such as the spectacular VDP.GROSSE LAGE® BASTEI in Traisen or the very steep FELSENBERG in Schlossböckelheim.

 

Dr. Peter Crusius' and his wife Birgitta's brought experience and deep knowledge are essential for the wine making, production and marketing of the 120 000 bottles, the VDP.Estate produces every year. A fresh breeze of air comes with the two daughters og the family: Judith Crusius nowadays takes care of marketing and export while Rebecca, who has a degree of the famous Hochschule Geisenheim, supports the work in the cellar and vineyards. She will start working full time for the winery in 2019.
