Because we unite craftsmanship and expertise

Our employees and partners are experts who complement each other in the best possible way.  Our winemakers, Philipp Closheim and Steffan Haub, have a practised eye and highly-tuned palate, while our experienced wine growers nurture the grapes on the vine. We have been collaborating with numerous wine growers in the largest German wine-growing regions for decades and together we decide the optimum  time to harvest the grapes as this is a critical factor in being able to produce great wine.

Because we are the fastest

The freshly harvested grapes are pressed in less than three hours thanks to our modern grape transport system, which takes them in a custom-built container to our nearby  vinification centres.  “Just in time!!!”

Short distances – fresh grapes

Because only in this way can the flavours of fresh grapes be preserved in the glass. Thanks to  the short distances the fermentation process of our red wines starts in a controlled manner, which is ideal for  full flavour and tannin development.  Likewise our white wine owes its fine balance between elegant fruit and acidity to rapid processing of the grapes in the vineyard, thereby allowing the aromas to develop their optimum potential  later on.

“No winery is as close to the grapes as Reh Kendermann“

We act with the greatest care at every stage of production

During the entire fermentation process our winemakers and cellarmasters check the developing wine every day, aided by analyses from our in-house laboratory. Temperature plays a decisive role not only when wine is consumed, but also during its production. This is why regular and careful monitoring of temperature is crucial.  Reh Kendermann was the first large-scale winery to ferment wines at controlled temperatures in Germany.

When the finished young wines have matured, we prepare them for bottling. Some wines are aged in oak to enhance taste and flavour.

We produce wines to meet the exact needs and expectations of our customers.

Our winemakers compose unique blends according to our customers’ specifications.  Whether just an initial idea or a tangible concept – we respond to the vision of our customers by creating wines to meet their needs.  Notwithstanding, every wine is the result of passion, vintage conditions and the experience and insight of our winemakers.

A flexible approach for our business partners
As an experienced partner for contract bottling we develop individual bottling solutions, design labels and choose the best sales options for every product thanks to a close-knit network of reliable trading partners worldwide.
