The Paul Schumacher winery is located in the Ahr wine region in Germany. This region is known for its red wines made from the Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) grape variety. The winery was founded in 1920 and has been family-owned for four generations. The current winemaker, also named Paul Schumacher, took over the winery from his father in 1992 and has since focused on producing high-quality wines using sustainable and environmentally friendly methods.
The winery owns 11 hectares of vineyards, all located on steep slopes that require manual labor for cultivation and harvesting. The vineyards are planted with a mix of Spätburgunder, Frühburgunder (an early-ripening clone of Pinot Noir), and Riesling grapes. The winery produces around 70,000 bottles per year.
The winery's flagship wine is the "Ahrweiler Silberberg" Spätburgunder, which comes from a single vineyard site that has been in the Schumacher family for over 200 years. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 to 14 months and is known for its complexity and aging potential. The winery also produces several other Spätburgunder wines, as well as a Frühburgunder and a Riesling.
