Ancient wine cellars and family traditions over generations inspire respect. At the Georg Naegele Estate, this is particularly the case, because it has been in the family for seven generations and is located in a historic building in the centre of an historic location.
The winery focuses on classical grape varieties: Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Gris et Noir. The red wines of the estate are a class of its own, with the Cuvée Chronos as a flagship. It reminds of fine Bordeaux and can be stored as long.
The approximately 15-hectare vineyards are cultivated in a controlled and environmentally friendly manner. Clear fruity aroma and individual expression characterize the wines made by the Bonnet family. The estate received the state honorary award several times, and in 2010, received the sought-after national honorary award, the highest award given out by the State of Rhineland-Palatine. Ralf and Eva Bonnet are passionate and prudent winegrowers: “Working in and with nature continues to challenge us. The natural interaction of climate, grapes, and soil makes us passionate for our profession. Keeping our vineyard soils healthy and maintaining them is the prerequisite for producing expressive wines full of character, but it is also a responsibility toward nature and the environment, which has been the foundation of our family’s existence for generations. ”And the history continues: With son David, born in 2001, and daughter Nina, born in 2006, the eighth generation is waiting in the starting blocks.
