H.J. Kreuzberg

In Dernau, in the heart of the Ahr Valley, Weingut Kreuzberg cultivates nearly nine hectares (22 acres) of vines, two-thirds of which are in sloping or steeply sloping sites with a high proportion of Devonian slate – soils that lend the wines their typical Ahr character. Pruning and bunch thinning lower yields, sometimes to less than 30 hl/ha. In addition to Pinot Noir and Pinot Madeleine as well as Dornfelder, Sauvignons are grown. The estate has holdings in eight sites that have been classified by the VDP and qualify for the production of Grosse Gewächse. All grapes are picked by hand. Red wines are fermented traditionally in large, open vats. The estate does not believe in trendy winemaking techniques. Top wines spend considerable time aging in barriques.
