The estate was first documented in 1605, and has been owned by the family ever since. The name ‘Dusemonder Hof’ derives from the former village name ‘Dusemond’ – changed in 1925 in order to correspond with the appellation used for the vineyard sites on the ‘Brauneberg’(brown hill). Vineyard Size and Grape Varieties: The estate owns 7 ha (17 acres) of choice parcels in the very steep, south-facing vineyards on the slate slopes opposite the village of Brauneberg – property recognized as the best of the region in the Napoleonic vineyard classification of 1804. Riesling, the only variety cultivated, stamps the character of the wine estate.
