KF Groebe winery

W are rather unique and we know what we want.
Our wines are for explorers, for the curious, for gourmets and for all those who defend their personal taste.

We make wine, we leave the cooking to the chefs.
We stand for cooperation in our region. We do not have any gastronomy, because we are convinced that chefs are much better at cooking than we are. We make wine, that's our job.

We don't have a sales manager
but happy and hospitable people will be happy to advise you.

English speaking visitors are welcome.

We can be seen
We are a member of the VDP (Association of perdicate wineries) and have been for more than 15 years. We stand up for terroir-shaped wines. Our flagship is RIESLING, here we show what we can do.

Westhofener Kirchspiel

Westhofener Kirchspiel

Glorious wines play on the tongue here!

No, for once this does not refer to the church (German: Kirche), which was often in possession of valuable land. The name has no religious reference, but means "hill covered with cherry trees". It was mentioned in a deed of donation in 1348 under the name "ab den Jierßbuhel". But it is not the cherry trees that catch the hiker's eye along the path today - but the cypresses. The slopes, which are up to 30 percent steep, are home to excellent wines that are internationally known. Limestone dominates the subsoil. But what does the word “Spiel” (English: play) refer to? Can cherry trees play? Do the leaves play in the wind maybe? Either way, wines from the Kirchspiel definitely play with the tongue in a good way.

Westhofener Aulerde

Westhofener Aulerde

Once clay for potters, today premium wines for connoisseurs

Once again the Middle High German: "Ule" means pot. The site was first mentioned in a document in 1382 with the name "an Ule erden". Why pot? Because potters found clay there. Today, the clay marl should stay where it is. And that is below the vines! Just as well as loess and limestone. Top Rieslings grow here: ripe aromas and fine exoticism on the nose; creamy and opulent on the palate. Due to the southern exposure, the grapes ripen early. Hikers enjoy the multitude of vineyard houses.

Westhofener Morstein

World famous and rich in stone

A bog (German: Moor) in Rheinhessen? Certainly not. The site was first mentioned in a document in 1282 with the name "in loco marstein" in a deed of donation to the Cistercian monastery of Otterberg (Pfalz) and can be interpreted as a "marker stone". In other words, it is a boundary stone or a landmark. It is indeed stony here: one stone found during clearing weighed up to 3.2 tons. In the upper soil layer, there are clay marl soils with limestone inclusions, and massive limestone rock underneath. Mineral Rieslings and Pinot Noirs bring world fame to the Westhofen winemakers. There are also plenty of vineyard cottages here, like the “Wingertshäusje Kommandozentrale".
