Home-bound winemakers in Rheinhessen, who crack down on traditions in order to gain room for innovation: that is Jörg Bernhard and his daughter Martina, who will soon become a trained technician for oenology and viticulture. Together, they discuss, certify the best batches and develop new vinifying methods. Their work is courageous for experimentation and, above all, ability. In 2013, their winery made it into the top 100 German winegrowers. With premium wines and predicate wines, but also in the truest sense of the word excellent Schoppenweinen. With favorites such as Pinot, Silvaner and Riesling, which are unmistakable on the calcareous soils in the relatively cool climate. In the cultivation are also Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Huxelrebe and the rare and particularly aromatic grape St. Laurent.
The modern family winery Bernhard receives many awards and was awarded in 2013 by the magazine Der Feinschmecker as "one of the best wineries in Germany". Further information at www.weingut-bernhard.de
