Jean Stodden

The red wine estate Jean Stodden is located in the municipality of Rech in the German wine-growing region Ahr, The traditional family has been growing grapes in the Ahr Valley since 1578. From 1900 Alois Stodden began to make his Pinot Noir himself. Gerhard Stodden led the company to the top in Germany from the mid-1980s. He is considered one of the pioneers for this grape variety. Today the estate is run by son Alexander Stodden, who was trained as an oenologist. The mostly steep slopes cover 6.5 hectares of vineyards in the individual layers Rosenthal (Ahrweiler) Castle garden and Hardtberg (Dernau) Sonnenberg (Neuenahr) Mönchberg (Mayschoß), as well as Hardtberg and Herrenberg (Computing). 88% of them are planted with Pinot Noir, 5% Riesling and the rest with Pinot Noir and Dornfelder. Quality criteria are reduced yields through appropriate pruning and thin out (Green harvest), selective hand picking with the aim of healthy and ripe grapes, as well as gentle processing. The white wines are mainly aged in stainless steel, the red wines for at least 16 months in new barriques and partly in large wooden barrels. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines (Riesling, Pinot Noir) and fine brandies are also produced. The winery has been a member of the VDP,
