After almost 250 years, and for eight generations, viticulture has run in the Kerpen family.
Riesling is grown exclusively on around 8 hectares made up of several named vineyards: Graacher Himmelreich, Graacher Domprobst, Bernkasteler Bratenhöfchen and Wehlener Sonnenuhr.
The interplay of Moselle slate, south-southwest aspect, minerality and climate is unique. The result is wines with a fine play between fruit and acidity, a low alcohol content and a long life. After carefully selecting the grapes by hand, they are gently pressed. Then the must fermented in wooden barrels and matured to dry, fine-dry, fruit sweet or noble sweet wines.
