Philosophy - The Quality Levels of the Weinbaudomäne Oppenheim:

Great-Growth Wine with Location Estate wine

Great-Growth: 'Großes Gewächs’

Wines declared to be out of the best vineyards in Germany: These wines are from the highest quality locations and therefore, terriors. This title is also only reserved for Riesling and Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) varieties. Harvest is of a maximum 50 hl/ha, the grapes are hand picked and selected, as well as measured at least ‘Spätlese’ (late picked).
The white wine cannot be marketed before the 1st of September and red wine at earliest a year later.

For example:
Niersteiner Oelberg Großes Gewächs
Nackenheimer Rothenberg Großes Gewächs
Niersteiner Glöck Großes Gewächs

Wine with location: 'Ortsweine’

Wine of traditional varieties and especially high quality vineyards:
The symbol of the grapes and eagle on the bottle crown, in combination with the place denotation especially, promises its origin embossed in the wine.

For example:
Niersteiner Silvaner vom Rotliegenden
Oppenheimer Riesling vom Kalkmergel
Bodenheimer Riesling vom Löß

Estate wine/Varietal wine: 'Gutsweine/Rebsortenweine’

Basic wine of high level:
Produced from at least 80% VDP recommended varieties and typical varieties of the region, the harvest limit is at a maximum of 75 hl/ha and regionally determined minimum weights.

For example:
Riesling trocken
Grauer Burgunder trocken
Spätburgunder trocken drucken nach oben  zurück
