Kreuzberg (Dernau)

“You can come whenever you like, apart from when Germany are playing. Football is sacred!” Said Peter Kreuzberg when we visited during the World Cup. We had tasted his Fruhburgunder in Steinheuer’s restaurant on our previous trip and resolved to visit him next time. The Kreuzberg style is pure, perfumey Ahr, generally with a touch of spicy oak. The basic Spatburgunder is compact and lean and the wines get lusher and oakier as you climb the ladder.
