Hair Johann

The winery is located in the municipality of Piesport (Bernkastel area) in the German Moselle wine region. The traditional family has been growing wine here since 1337. The Johann Haart Winery came into being at the beginning of the 1920s by sharing the inheritance of the great Josef Haart Winery between the seven siblings. Josef Haart's vineyards were marked with yellow-coloured terracotta stakes at the upper end (stakes at each end of the vineyard). After the division of the inheritance, each child was given a colour to mark his or her inherited vineyards. Haart Johann got yellow-blue, Haart Reinhold yellow-red and so on. That is why today there are still yellow-blue poles at the boundaries of the plots. Today the farm is run by Gerd and Elfriede Haart. They also rent out holiday apartments. The vineyards cover six hectares of vineyards in the individual sites Domherr, Falkenberg, Goldtröpfchen and Treppchen (Piesport). They are almost exclusively planted with Riesling (97%), as well as some Pinot Blanc, Müller-Thurgau and Pinot Noir. Important quality criteria in the vineyard are selective harvesting, reduced yields and healthy and highly mature grapes. The wines are cooled and slowly fermented and then mature in steel tanks. They are matured dry, finely tart, fruity-sweet and in years suitable for the weather also noble-sweet.
