Winery Hunter

The family business of the Jäger family, which now operates in the 5th generation of viticulture, combines traditional craftsmanship with careful vineyard care, the knowledge of innovative cellar technology and uncompromising quality management - starting with the vine refinement from the own nursery. Diana Jäger and Andrea Mathes take care of the vineyard work and the organizational matters. Armin Jäger and Benedikt Jäger are responsible for the vinification of the wines in the cellar. The white wine is produced in the cold fermentation process between 10 ° C to 15 ° C with a delayed yeast propagation for a slow fermentation. The red wines are mashed fermented, the aging takes place exclusively in traditional oak barrels or in small oak barrels. All wines are processed gently and strictly controlled. The result is full-bodied, pure and varietal wines with many primary aromas.

Ockenheimer Hockenmühle

The mill on the hill of Hucco

“in de Hocke gehen” (engl. to squat) means to bend the knees, to make oneself very small. Hence the name? No. The location was first mentioned in a document in 1348 with the name "hinter deme huckenbule". Middle High German "buhil" means hill. And "Hucken" probably comes from a personal name. The mill on the Hucco hill. Riesling, Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau and many more grow on deep, chalky loam and clay marl.
