Kurt Hain

Gernot Hain took on the running of his family's estate in 1988, when the running of their Goldtröpfchen Hotel became more demanding of his father.

Kurt Hain began by purchasing parcels in the top Piesport sites and the estate now totals 4.7 hectares of which 80 per cent is planted with Riesling, mainly in the Piesporter Domherr and Goldtröpfchen. The balance is mainly Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir to satisfy demand in the hotel. Great care is taken in the vineyards to grow clean, healthy grapes and vinification takes place in the hotel's 200 years cellars which are kept cool and humid by a stream flowing through them. Fermentation is at low temperature mainly in stainless steel and where possible with natural yeast. Winemaking and maturation is reductive to preserve aroma and freshness and to accentuate the richness and body which the deep soils at Piesport give to the wines. Gernot is widely recognised as one of the most talented young producers on the Mosel.

Vintage guide

The warmest year on record, 2022 has produced some super results. The wines of 2021 are lighter in style and more aromatic with evident acidity compared with the previous two vintages. 2020 saw a warm summer, giving ripeness, while a prolonged harvest has given freshness and perfect quality fruit. The 2019s show wonderful rapier-like style, good weight and depth, yields are lower than the generous 2018 vintage. “A glorious vintage” said one grower, amongst many superlatives bandied about for 2018. For the first time in 10 years growers were truly happy with the quantity and the quality. The resulting wines are pure, rich, aromatic, and show a fine acidity. An early harvest following frost earlier in the season meant 2017 produced excellent light, fruity wines with great finesse. Weather conditions were tricky in 2016 and growers had to earn their stripes; the early season was wet, which reduced yields, followed by a hot summer with cool nights bringing excellent aromatics but with wines a little lighter than 2015. The brilliant 2015 vintage took place in ideal conditions and produced wonderfully ripe wines in all styles. Kabinetts are a bit short in quantity, but the dry wines especially are very approachable. 2014 saw a good crop of light, well-balanced wines with well integrated acidity.
