Hague Fritz

The origin of the winery "Fritz Haag - Dusemonder Hof" in the community Brauneberg (was called Dusemond until 1925) in the German growing region Moselle dates back to 1605.

Wegeler Heirs the company has been run by his son Oliver Haag since early 2005. The vineyards cover 12.5 hectares of vineyards, eight of which are in the top locations in Brauneberg Juffer and Juffer sundial, The extraordinary showpiece in the Juffer Sonnenuhr is a 7,000 m² plot with 80-year-old vines. The grapes are harvested by hand in mostly four rounds. In the first round, around 20% of the grapes are selected from which the acidic estate wine is made. The rest of the grapes are destined for the predicate wines and, if possible, remain on the vine for considerably longer. The winery specializes in dry, fine-fruity to noble sweet top-quality plants. The quality wines are marketed under the respective location name, the quality wines under the property name. The winery is a member of VDP (Association of German quality wine estates). Wilhelm Haag was the association chairman of the VDP-Moselle for many years and is now honorary chairman.
