A once historic estate with 100 acres under its belt, found its way to a slow decline, down to 6 acres until being taken over by Thomas and Ute Haag. They have slowly revived the vineyards, quality and reputation to its former glory, including purchasing and leasing 185 Grosse Lagen or "Grand Cru" sites. They are working on farming everything organically with the help of their two children, Lara and Niklas. Winemaking is long and slow and reductive, with spontaneous fermentation, and no fining or filtering, preferring to wait as long as need be for racking to give the purest expression of site.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 95
"The 2019 Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese is still reductive on the nose but very fine, pure and elegant, with ripe but also coolish fruit intertwined with flint and woodruff notes. Very distinctive indeed. On the palate, this is a lush and elegant, highly refined and weightless Spätlese with great balance—a composition that makes you swallow it in a second. In fact, it is a very delicate wine that comes along like a dream of a Spätlese."

German Wines

Is there a better grape than Riesling? Is there a better value? Its fruit purity, its perfume, and its mineral nuance are all unparalleled. And for centuries, the top German Rieslings were priced accordingly: at least as expensive as the top red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But nowadays you could spend a lifetime exploring Germany’s great Riesling-producing regions while staying well within your budget. You might take an occasional break to try Germany’s other white grapes or perhaps a glass of Spätburgunder (the local name for Pinot Noir). It’s time to get started!
