Gag Beate

The estate is located in the municipality of Winningen (Burg Cochem area) in the German wine-growing region Moselle, The family's wine-growing tradition dates back to 1642. The property, which operated under the "Knebel Brothers", was divided into family members in 1989. With his wife Beate, Reinhard Knebel (+2004) took over a 1.7 hectare part. After studying in Geisenheim and practical experience at well-known wineries, son Matthias Knebel is responsible. The vineyards now cover almost seven hectares. Most of it is in the extremely steep location Röttgen, Here are some 40 years old on average, some ungrafted Riesling vines in traditional single-post education. The rest is on the Bruckstück, Hamm and mills distributed.

For the most part, Riesling and some Pinot Blanc are cultivated. After a consistent reduction in yield and strictly selective harvesting, the grapes are presorted again before pressing, if necessary. The musts are then principally made of wood and stainless steel spontaneous fermented with natural yeast. Great emphasis is placed on the traditional Natural Wine thoughts placed. In addition to the dry wines, there are regularly noble sweet Rieslings. Predicate names are only used for the second.
