Kuhnle Werner

The estate is located in the community Weinstadt-Strümpfelbach (area Remstal-Stuttgart) in the German wine-growing region Wuerttemberg, It is located in the 500 year old forester's lodge in the historic center and has been run by Margret and Werner Kuhnle since 1983. Both stem from vineyard families with centuries of winemaking tradition. The vineyards cover 23 hectares of vineyards in the individual layers Altenberg and Nonnenberg (Strümpfelbach), Sonnenberg (Schnait), and Pulvermächer (Stetten). They are 70% with the red varieties Trollinger, Samtrot, Black Riesling, Pinot Noir, Lemberger, St. Laurent, Merlot, Zweigelt, Regent, Shiraz and Garanoir, and planted to 30% with the white varieties Riesling, Kerner, Silvaner, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay ,

The white wines as well as the light trollinger mature without exception in the stainless steel tank to preserve flavor and freshness. In the soft, full-bodied red wines, the color intensity is promoted by gentle warming of the mash after the typical "Swabian school". The valuable red top wines undergo a mash fermentation with long service life. Then they are sorted for two years in Barrels of French and Hungarian oak expanded. The flagship of the house is the red wine cuvée "Forstknecht Marz", which is named after the ducal forest servant Johann Adam Marz. This built in 1749 from 1530 originating old Strümpfelbacher forest house in the style of his time to a baroque half-timbered house. In weather-appropriate years also Trockenbeerenauslese be pressed. It also liqueurs (grape, peach), spirits and flaschenvergorene sect are produced.
