The vinery

Our grapes grow and develop on about 9 hectare on the fields surrounding Brauneberg and its neighboring communities.

In addition to the hallmark of our winery, the Brauneberger Juffer location, there are also allotments in the traditional sites of Kestener Paulinshofberg, Piersporter Goldtröpfen, Wintricher Geierslay and Oligberg, Mühlheimer Sonnenlay, Veldenzer Grafschafter Sonnenberg , as well as Dhroner Hofburg, from which we produce our best Rieslings and Pinot Noirs.

A controlled low harvest amount , a precise grape selection (all of which are picked and sorted by hand), in addition to a gentle grape treatment without mechanical pressure, ensures the highest quality.

Since 1999 Stefan Steinmetz has had the main responsibility for the wine production. The transition to the next generation enabled not only the continuation of the traditional winery, but also an improvement in all areas of vinification through proven, newly-acquired knowledge and modern production techniques.

The center of the meticulous work in the vinery and cellar is the discovery of the typicity of each individual location. In every vintage and every position, considering the geological and climatic conditions, a maximum of quality is attempted.

The production utilizes mostly organic methods. These consist of environmentally-friendly winegrowing, including rejecting fertilizer as well as herbicides and insecticides.

The targeted acquisition of old, root genuine Riesling parcels also belongs to our vision of quality.

In our wine cellar there is a strict prohibition of any use of yeasts and accelerators, in addition to acidic additives or de-acidifiers. Similarly, no animal proteins are used. All wines are, without exception, fermented in wood or steel barrels. The result is individual, characteristic and extremely storable wines, which can only be described as unique.

How we think - how we work

We think that sustainable wine-production in the middle-Moselle region is closely linked to respect for tradition.

First, respect for tradition means confining the cultivation of historic slate slopes to the prominent locations, where great wines have been produced throughout the centuries. Hence, we limit ourselves to the classic grape varieties.

We are committed to an absolute organic viniculture. For great wines can only arise from harmony with nature.

Our wine cellar is completely void of additives.

We believe that the use of additives like yeasts, enzymes and miscellaneous aids in the vinification process leads to mass-produced wines, which obstruct the uniqueness of our region.

We believe the distinguished wines of the Moselle require time. Their maturing potential and longevity are world-famous.

With respect to tradition ever in the forethought of our productions, from vine to bottle, this is how we think and how we work.

“This is how it was in the past and how it should remain in the future.”— Stefan Steinmetz

Fingerprint

Ziel meiner Bemühungen ist es,
Weine zu schaffen, die ein "fingerprint"
von allem sind, was den Charakter
einer großen Lage ausmacht.

Sie sollten Lage, Boden, Kleinklima und die Beschaffenheit der Rebstöcke, also alle Eigenarten der Umgebung abbilden, in denen sie gewachsen sind - und dies unter Einbringung meiner Persönlichkeit als Winzer.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous

I have repeatedly written to express my amazement – and even a bit of concern – at the rapid growth of young Stefan Steinmetz’s estate, whose 22 acres now include holdings in more than a dozen Einzellagen (two of them new in 2016) spread across half a dozen communes... and that’s not including his joint projects, of which there are now two. 88–94/100

Yves Beck

Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Auslese 2016, verkostet am 06.07.17 von Yves Beck. Riesling: Helles Gelb mit Grünreflex. Ausladendes und komplexes Bouquet, geprägt von Düften von Aprikose, Zitrus und Mirabelle. Würziger Charakter. Der Auftakt ist charmant, aber auch mineralisch und lebhaft. Der Körper verfügt über eine rassige Struktur, die die Aromatik bestens stützt, vom Anfang bis zum Ende des Auftaktes. Letztendlich sind auch leichte Bitternoten am Abgang vorhanden. Keine Frage, ein großer Wein, der ganz am Anfang seiner Laufbahn steht. Eine Art Bombe mit Spätzündung. 2021-2046 93–95/100

Gault Millau

Eigentlich kann man hier in diesem Gut jeden Wein blind kaufen. Man wird nicht enttäuscht. Stefan Steinmetz hat mit dem Jahrgang 2012 noch einmal an der Qualitätsschraube gedreht und heraus kam ein extrem homogenes Sortiment. Insbesondere im trockenen Bereich trumpfte Steinmetz mit zartsalzigen, fordernden und eigenwilligen Rieslingen auf. Eine Palette an restsüßen Spätlesen ließ uns schwanken, welchen Typ wir bevorzugen sollten. Wir entschieden uns für die duftige und gleichzeitig kraftvolle Brauneberger Juffer, die nur noch von der rassigen Auslese aus dem Kestener Paulinsberg übertrumpft wurde.
