State winery Bad Kreuznach

The institute in Bad Kreuznach in the German Nahe wine region was established in 1900 as a teaching and experimental facility of the Prussian Provincial School for the training of winegrowers and young winegrowers. From this, the "Staatsweingut Bad Kreuznach", owned by the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, emerged, which is now managed by Rudolf Schunck. The vineyards comprise 20 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Forst, Hinkelstein, Kahlenberg and Vogelsang (Kreuznach), as well as Kafels (Norheim). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (50%), Silvaner, Pinot Blanc, Müller-Thurgau, Scheurebe and Gewürztraminer, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Frühburgunder, Portugieser, Dornfelder, Domina, Regent and Schwarzriesling. At the institute, the winemaking methods of controlled fermentation and fermentation interruption for the production of residual sweet wines, both under fermentation carbon dioxide pressure, were developed. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines and fine spirits (wine, yeast, marc) are also produced. Wines dating back to the 1920s are stored in the so-called treasure chamber.
