  • Ahr river Wines - a red spot of viticulture

    Ahr yes - red wine from Germany. From the red wine paradise Ahr itself, of course. From steep rocky slopes, warming rock and the northernmost wine-growing area in Rhineland-Palatinate. The Ahr meanders through the valley, flanked by wooded northern slopes and the southern slopes, which are covered with patches of wine. This is where the demanding Pinot Noir thrives in all its glory, where Germany's best red wine is produced, and where Ahr wine is at home. 

    Ahr wines - a speciality from Germany

    The Ahr is a small wine-growing region with a big name. The approximately 550 hectares of vineyards are almost negligible in comparison to the Palatinate or Rheinhessen, but here it is not the size that matters, but how the vines are handled. In any case, the winegrowers take a lot of effort, especially when climbing the steep and barren rock formations. Thank goodness; otherwise we would miss the finest red wines from Germany.

    Wine from the Ahr - goes steeply

    The natural wine growing border runs along the 51st degree of latitude, the vineyards of the Ahr are clearly above it. And yet the wine-growing region is considered one of the warmest in Germany. With its south-facing slate slopes, it is easily able to produce dense and velvety red wines. The leading variety in the often small plots is the Pinot Noir, which shows itself in the glass as an elegant and fruity wine. 

    Ahr wine of strong character

    Also very popular on the Ahr is the Frühburgunder, which, as the name suggests, ripens somewhat earlier than the Spätburgunder, which is itself a rather early ripening grape variety. Basically, all Burgundy varieties have found an excellent home here. There are also a few Blue Portugieser and Riesling vines, but these have a very small share in the already small growing area.

    Shortly before the Ahr flows into the Rhine, one discovers gentle and finesse-rich wines in the vineyards. At the other end of the cultivation area, however, rather juicy and mineral wines are produced. Wherever you are in Ahr - the wine is mostly red. About 87% of the vineyard area is cultivated with red grape varieties. This makes the Ahr the largest closed wine-growing region in Germany for red wine - and the red wine from the Ahr an ambassador for first-class winemaker work. 

    The special climate on the Ahr

    This special location of the Ahr is due not only to the heat-storing soils of slate, loess and volcanic rock, but also to the climatic characteristics of the region. The sheltered location between the Vosges and Eifel Mountains experiences numerous hours of sunshine, but only little precipitation. 

    The typical Ahr wine

    Wine from the Ahr - must be a Pinot Noir This is usually the right guess. But the Pinot Noir is especially close to the hearts of the people in the Ahr valley. It is not unusual for the early-ripening Pinot Noir grapes to be pressed as rosé. Another speciality is the Ahrbleichert, a white vinified Pinot Noir wine. 

    The star in the red wine paradise of Ahr, however, is and remains the red pressed Pinot Noir, which combines the terroir of the Ahr. The sun-fed soils offer the vines pleasant temperatures day and night. The mountain ranges provide protection against precipitation, and the mild "Mediterranean climate" does its part to ensure that the Ahr wines are velvety and well structured. 

    Deep loess soils and volcanic rocks mix under the slate soil and provide the vines with a rich minerality. In addition to the fruity notes, a light earthy note can be detected in the wines from the Ahr. All these nuances combine in the wine to form a dense symbiosis of the best that this small wine-growing region has to offer.

    Wineries in the Ahr wine-growing region

    Winery Burggarten

    The generation-spanning winery, not far from the mighty Landskrone, with its 15 hectares is responsible for about 120,000 bottles of wine from the Ahr. And they are very popular, as only about 20% leave the borders of the Ahr wine-growing region. The rest is sold directly from the farm. All the better that VINELLO has acquired the rare wines of the Burggarten Winery. Grown sometimes on volcanic rock and aged in wooden barrels, the wines present themselves with an incomparable elegance and freshness in the glass.

    Meyer-Näkel

    Everything that the Ahr has to offer can be found in the assortment of the Meyer-Näkel winery. Blanc de Noir, rosé, fresh Pinot Gris white wine and of course a velvety Pinot Noir red wine. Only the finest is on offer. The winery around "wine educator" Werner Näkel is known among the most renowned wine critics and gets highest scores from Falstaff to Eichelmann and Gault Millau. 

    The wines of the Dernau winery often have a long maceration period behind them and thus refresh themselves on the expressive minerality of the soil. Matured in barriques, the Ahr wines gain even more complexity. The result: award-winning wines from the Ahr from the "German Top Winery for Red Wine", which is described in the magazine Feinschmecker.
