German Nahe wines
Le Connaisseur sells Nahe wines from winery Dönnhoff and Kruger Rumpf.
The wine region on the Nahe, with its tributaries Glan and Alsenz, has a tradition of 2000 years. Thanks to the shelter from cold winds by the high Hunsrück, mild temperatures and lots of sunshine provide an excellent climate for cultivation in the rain-poor and sunny valley. On about 4000 hectares, grapes such as Riesling, Rivaner and Silvaner thrive here. The various Burgunders species (Pinots), Kerner, Scheurebe, Portugieser and Dornfelder also feel at home here. The favorite of the winegrowers is the refined Riesling, which takes care of a quarter of the planting. A literally turbulent geological past has given the Nahe a great variety of soils. The vines are on slate, volcanic porphyry, loess or loam. This makes a versatile range of grape varieties and wine styles possible.
