This year we've got a real Golden October.

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 - After Harvest 2021

Dear Friends of Weinbau Goldene Gans,

this year's weather was different from the last three years: much rain and a cool summer. What did the vines with it? They were glad to have enough water this time so that we could harvest a good amount of grapes. Due to lack of sun the grapes didn't develop too much sugar so that the 21 vintage will have less alcohol - which is not too bad either. So in the end we are quite happy with the harvest this year.

We've started to prepare the new price list for the delivery tours. If you've got relatives or friends in Germany we'll be able to arrange a delivery to them.

Take care and stay in good health!

Sincerely yours

Gerlinde and Karl-Friedrich Krämer
