The Haag’s 15th-century half-timbered house – the oldest in the village – is testimony that the family has been involved in viticulture for more than 400 years. Partially dug into the rocky hillside behind the house are the deep,vaulted cellars.The high humidity and nearly constant temperature throughout the year provide ideal conditions for aging wine. Many a mature bottle stored here is still remarkably fresh.
Vineyard Size and Grape Varieties:
The estate’s 5.8 ha (13.6 acres) of vines are on steep, slate slopes planted exclusively with Riesling.
Brauneberger Juffer, Juffer-Sonnenuhr.
The portfolio includes both dry and fruitier- style wines, ranging from simple QbAs to noble, rich Beerenauslese. The Haag family strives to achieve the finest quality possible. Cultivating vines on steep, slate slopes is labor- and cost-intensive, yet as a family operation, with two generations working side by side, the Haags can meet the challenge.
Fifty percent of the wines are exported; on the domestic market: private customers, restaurateurs and the specialty trade.
