THE AHR VALLEY, one of Germany’s northernmost (and smallest) appellations, is also one of its best kept secrets. An astounding 80% of the vineyards here have achieved Grosses Gewächs (grand cru) certification. It is here that Kreuzberg has, since 1953, produced world class Pinot Noir on its 9 hectares of holdings, 7 ha of which lie on the Ahr’s steep Devonian slate slopes.
Pending sustainable certification, Kreuzberg practices organic soil cultivation through natural fertilization and cover crops. Intensive handwork, leafing and fruit dropping leads to limited yields as low as 35 hl/ha.
