OUR EXCLUSIVE AHR WINE TASTINGS

Tasting is more important than studying!

Wines can only be described to a certain extent. What counts is what you feel and taste on your tongue and tastebuds, what your nose sniffs and the pleasant warmth that spreads through your belly. You are very welcome to any of the wine tastings in our tasting room or the cellar. By special request you can pre-order a snack or a plate of cold cuts. A guided tour of the vineyards (weather permitting) or the cellar and our production area will give you a first-hand impression of a winemaker’s work.

We can also host your family or business celebrations. Please contact us with your preferred date in good time. It will be our pleasure to provide you with a quotation for the services you would like. Simply telephone: +49 26 43 - 35 80. We’d be happy to advise you.
