Aldinger Gerhard

The winery is located in the community of Fellbach in the German Württemberg wine region. The long winegrowing tradition of the family can be traced back to 1492, when "Bentz der Aldinger" already cultivated vines here. The winery has been owned by Gert Aldinger for 15 generations. Hansjörg Aldinger is the managing director and Matthias Aldinger the cellar master. The vineyards comprise 27 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Berg (Hanweil), Goldberg and Lämmler (Fellbach), Schlossberg (Rotenberg), Mönchberg and Pulvermächer (Stetten), Götzenberg (Uhlbach), as well as in sole possession of gypsum (Untertürkheim). They are stocked with the red wine varieties Trollinger, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Lemberger and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as the white wine varieties Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The white wines are slowly fermented in a cool place between 12 and 14° C to preserve the primary grape aromas before they mature on the fine yeast in steel tanks. The red wines ferment for up to 20 days on the mash before they receive their biological acid decomposition and mature in steel tanks, large wooden barrels or barriques, depending on the quality or desired wine type. Fine brandies are also produced. The winery is a member of the VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter).
