World famous Riesling wines from Oberemmel

The most important vineyards include the world-famous Scharzhofberger, the Oberemmeler Hütte, which is solely owned by the winery, and the outstanding single vineyard site "Hörecker", a "fillet piece" in the Kanzemer Altenberg. The sustainable cultivation of the vineyards is carried out according to the strict guidelines of the "Fair & Green" association, which awards its seal for sustainable cultivation and winery management. Abstaining from herbicides, mineral fertilizers and pesticides is a given and reflects the philosophy of the winery owner.

Founding member of VDP, creates superb Riesling wines

The von Hövel winery has been family-owned since 1803 and later became a founding member of the VDP. In 2010, Maximilian von Kunow took over the business from his father. Before that, the young winemaker had learned and experimented at other wineries and advised Luxembourg winemakers. His love for the delicate, brightly fruity Saar Rieslings led him to return to his parents' winery.

Finest Riesling wines from the Saar

On 22 hectares of vineyards with blue Devonian slate, the von Hövel winery grows exclusively Riesling. The traditional winery is the sole owner of two top vineyards classified as "Große Lagen". The filigree-elegant wines from the steep areas in the "Oberemmeler Hütte" show themselves with citrus-stone fruit scent, herbal notes and characteristic juiciness.

The very old vines in the steep "Kanzemer Hörecker" provide the Riesling with an earthy minerality as well as herbal and slightly tobacco notes. These Rieslings are among the finest on the Saar. In addition, the von Hövel winery cultivates a parcel in the legendary "Scharzhofberg," arguably the best site on the Saar. Clear, racy and full of character, these "Grosse Gewächse" Rieslings delight Riesling lovers all over the world.
