A true homage in name and winemaking to the best of German red wines and to Germany’s red-wine home, the Ahr Valley. This member of the Pinot Noir family is a specialty of this small yet exceptional wine-growing area, a tributary of the Rhine near the Moselle River, and presents an impressive red wine experience.

Ad Aram – Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir)

A beautiful rich red wine from Germany’s best pinot noir area, the Ahr Valley. Different from classic heavier French or Australian styles, it displays depth and complexity of character with delicious mellow undertones. A red wine to savour with the best of company.

Dornfelder

trocken (dry)
A relatively new grape variety, Dornfelder was first cultivated in Germany in the mid-1950s. Its deep red colour and rich yet not overpowering flavour has made it one of Germany’s favourite easy-drinking red wines. As a result, most of the wine production is snapped up by the locals and is rarely found outside Germany.
