Weingut Kriechel, the Largest Private Family Wine-growing Estate in Ahrvalley

Weingut Kriechel is the largest private family wine-growing estate in Ahrvalley with more than 60 years of history. In 1969, Peter Kriechel handed over the winery to his two sons, Ernst and Hermann. Due to lack of space and the constant expansion, the winery moved to Ahrweiler from Marienthal in the 70s. In 2003, the third-generation of the winery took over and are currently responsible for all the work in the vineyards and the cellar. The winery even uses local Ahr oak for their barrels, which are carefully examined by Kufer Hosch, the cellar master. With over 4 hectares of Frühburgunder vines, the wine-growing estate is the largest producer of this specialty in the world. In recent years, the owners have done an excellent job of maintaining the family tradition and made exceptional wines.

Sixty Years of Expertise

Currently, they own around 30 hectares of vineyards in the best locations on the steep slopes of Ahrvalley, a land developed and cultivated by man. The vines are cultivated with proper care and environmental-friendly methods. There is no use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides, and it allows the grapes to retain their natural taste. All the grapes are handpicked by workers and processed gently in the cellar. The main grape varieties that grow in their vineyards are Spätburgunder, Frühburgunder, Grau-Weißburgunder, Domina, Regent, Kerner, and Riesling. Only the best grapes are processed to make their award-winning red, white, rose, sparkling, and dessert wines. Their high-quality wines won the prestigious Deutscher Rotweinpreis award in 2013, 2016, and 2019.
