Kröber Rudiger

The estate is located in the community Winningen (area Burg Cochem) in the German wine-growing region Moselle, In the middle of the last century, Werner Kröber made a good name in Winningen as a self-employed Holzküfer. Due to the advent of plastic tanks, traditional cooperage lost more and more importance from the 1960s. The formerly operated as a sideline viticulture was therefore now the main source of income. In 1991, the company was taken over by his son Rüdiger and his wife Ute and expanded by then two hectares by buying up steep slopes to its present size. The vineyards cover seven hectares of vineyards in the Winninger Lagen Brückstück, Hamm, Röttgen and mills, They are planted to 94% with Riesling, and some Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Noir and Dornfelder. Following the harvest, the grapes are processed as gently as possible and waiving any mechanical stress. Great emphasis is placed on a long and quiet fermentation period. The wines are matured both in stainless steel containers and in traditional pedigree barrels made by the father. Bottling usually takes place in the middle of the following year. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines, fruit brandies and liqueurs are also produced.
