The most important asset of the Dr. Heidemanns-Bergweiler Wine Estate consists of its vineyards. Extensive care of these vineyards, combined with intentionally low yields and selective handpicking, serve as guarantors for our extraordinary wines and their individual and unique character.
Our quality orientation is continued in our work in the wine cellar. The Riesling grapes are processed in modern facilities just outside of Bernkastel. Our work flow is focused on gentle treatment of the grapes and the young wines. The wines are made carefully in order to insure that the typical tastes and aromas of a given vineyard are maintained.
We use small stainless steel tanks where the grapes of each different vineyard can be fermented separately. Since we have 15 different vineyards by name, we need to blend some of them later and before we fill the wine into bottles to ensure that the number of wines stays manageable. The fermentation is temperature-controlled and kept very slow and at low temperatures to retain the diversity of aromas and the vitality of the wines.
Our collection of Riesling wines is very diverse. In most vintage years we have all the varieties found on a good wine menu, ranging from a juicy, hearty table wine to fine quality wine and further to a creamy, sweet dry berry selection.
