Description

Like all wines, Bruno stands for Riesling from steep slopes, slate and handcraft. With a moderate alcohol content, it convinces with its pleasant mineral texture and subtle slate notes, with aromas of citrus fruits and juicy, yellow stone fruit. The well-integrated acidity makes it a lively wine with plenty of crisp freshness, ideal as an aperitif or with light summer dishes.

Marc Almert about the Bruno Riesling Dry

"I am a Cologne boy." This song line that became famous through Willy Millowitsch describes both "Bruno" and myself. In my hometown of Cologne, I discovered my love for wine, nota bene, also for Riesling, during my training as a hotel specialist. And even then, I enjoyed serving wines from the historic Karthäuserhof - the eighth oldest winery in the world. The team at the Karthäuserhof has now created "Bruno", named after Bruno of Cologne, the founder of the Carthusian Order. This dangerously delicious Riesling with its beguiling combination of fruit and acidity effortlessly immerses you in the lightness of the Rhineland. The bottle will be empty in no time - guaranteed!

Karthäuserhof

The Karthäuserhof - The cradle of world-famous Rieslings, ever since 1335.
 

The Karthäuserhof is a magical spot. Not just because of its idyllic location but also because it is the eighth oldest winegrowing estate in the world and for centuries the cradle of world-famous Rieslings. It was founded in 1335 by Carthusian monks who received the estate as a gift from Prince-Elector Balduin of Luxembourg and operated it as a winery until secularisation. Since 1811 the Karthäuserhof has been owned by the same family, now in the seventh generation.

The reason for the exceptional quality of the wines from the Karthäuserhof is the legendary Karthäuserhofberg vineyard at the foot of which the winery is located. Its unique "terroir" gives rise to wines of incomparable character and immense maturity potential. The Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter (VDP), i.e. the Association of German Quality Wine Estates, classifies the Karthäuserhofberg as a “VDP.GROSSE LAGE”, thereby designating it as one of the outstanding quality German vineyards. This classification is reserved for vineyards from which the best German wines offering complex taste, expressive vineyard character and particular maturity potential originate.

Mosel

Mosel: in Riesling territory

In the valleys of the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer, the white Riesling variety fully fulfils its potential. Mosel is not only the German growing area with the highest proportion of Riesling; the largest number of steep slopes are also found here. Around 40 percent of the vineyards are situated on gradients of greater than 30 percent, and must be cultivated with labour-intensive manual work. On the slate soils, Riesling presents its entire inimitable range, from dry to semidry to noble sweet..

Germany – Into the elite the hard way

Sitting in the heart of Europe, the hilly, lake-dotted landscape of Germany provides ideal, fertile soil for the most diverse vine varieties. From Albalonga to Zweigelt, over 140 different grape varieties are grown on about 100,000 acres, cared for by nearly 50,000 vintners. Most of these vintners are young, modern, internationally trained, inquisitive and urbane. It is hardly surprising, then, that German wine has a good reputation well beyond the country's borders.
