Cutting the prunes is the work to do in these weeks. Let's wait and see how long the snow will stay.

Wine Estate

Dielheim is a village situated about 15 km south of Heidelberg. The region is called Kraichgau (don't try to pronounce it, just enjoy it!). It boasts a beautiful landsape with small hills and slopes, vineyards, fields and woods. Our own vineyards can be found between the villages of Dielheim and Rauenberg.

In the 1960's Karl-Friedrich's father started growing vines as a hobby. He had a good friend in Dielheim and this was the reason for him later buying his first vineyard here. For Karl-Friedrich it grew from a hobby into a profession and in the 1980's the family bought an old trade building and turned it into a winery.

Our Wines

Karl-Friedrich spent his apprenticeship as vintner in one of the pioneer wine estates producing organic grapes.  In 2003 we joined the organic wine growing advisory service and over the next three years Karl-Friedrich began testing organic spraying. After that, our estate was converted into an organic viticulture and since 2008 we have been certified as EU organic estate (DE-022-Eco-Inspection Body).

Since the year 2012 new European standards for the preparation of wine were introduced. We did not have to alter our vinification methods to be allowed to use the new  logo for or organic wines.

There are many new methods of vinification that have in the meantime become international  standards, such as the use of artificial enzymes, yeast food preparation, and additives improving the mouth feeling. We like to do without them and let the wines develop slowly their own way. Thus our wines are not necessarily trendy and mainstream but do without doubt have their own character.

Welcome - Winter 2021

Dear Friends of Weinbau Goldene Gans,

a difficult year has ended and we hope that a better and easier New Year will come for the sake of all people. We were grateful that in spite of the travel limitations Karl-Friedrich was allowed to deliver our wines. These journeys turned out to be rather quick as all customers refrained from lang talks. We are very disciplined but at the same time we are longing for our normal way of communications. Let's stay cool.

As you can see on the photo we can continue to work. A vintner in the vineyard ist rather alone, also while caring for the wines in the cellar.

Let's be confident for the future and make the best of the New Year 2021.

Sincerely yours

Gerlinde and Karl-Friedrich Krämer
