Großheubach, Germany (Gastrosofie). Stefan Kremer, owner of the Kremer winery, points out „a lot has happened in our family vineyard in recent years“. „We worked intensively on our wines, on our philosophy and on the sustainable management of our vineyards. Generation change and the stylistic development of our wines have shaped our winery and opened up new paths for the future.” True enough – as recommendations tell us.
The winery Kremer was founded in 1975. The second generation has been working along with the first for some time already, while the third is growing up to take over when they get the chance.
How modern standards meanwhile play a role in the vineyard and in the winery is shown by the thanks to generous glass fronts both bright and spacious, well designed wine showroom for above all a with-it lot among the guests and becoming buyers.
For example, wines from the Großheubacher Bischofsberg may be tasted here. The southern exposure along the Main in the beautiful Churfanken region is envisaged in a brisk presentation. The slope in this winegrowing area tilts from 10% to partly 50%. The soils are very rocky and – no question – barren. Rock bottom, as you can see come out some places and on building facades, is beautiful red sandstone – especially with the sun glowing on it.
20% of the area that belong to winery Kremer are located in steep terraced vineyards at the Großheubacher Bischofsberg. Overall, nearly 10 hectares of vineyards (60% producing white wine and 40% red wine) are farmed.
Uli Kremer, who runs through the program of the vinotheque with gusto, points out that „sustainable management without the use of glyphosate and mineral fertilizer“ is part of their philosophy.
At the winery, Kremer Junior takes care of everything that is of work in the vineyard, the cellar and in marketing, including us, while his dad runs the cellar bistro and is in charge of sales. „The majority of our wine we market directly from the farm,“ says Uli Kremer. So get there in time!
We now switch from fresh and fruity wine aromas to classic white wines from a specially shaped bottle Bocksbeutel such as Silvaner, and then turn to tasting red wines like Pinot Noir.
For that it is „never too late“, as Stefan Kremer, who stays to be a friend of the 2017 Silvaner says, while his wife Christine seems to favour the 2018 Muskateller. And Uli Kremer goes one better: the 2017 Chardonnay is his favourite wine.
Best you can do is to try these three and much more in the wine shop, the stylish vinotheque. Cheers! Enjoy!
