Year in review, Christmas greeting and thank you 2022

Dear wine friends,
a special year comes to an end and we look back:

January- March: pruning is on the agenda. The 2021 wines are filled. We are planning a new project: the “love of asparagus”.

April- June: Bending and soil work are the order of the day in the vineyards. Finally we are allowed to celebrate again the “Open Day” on May 01.
And this celebration uses our son/grandson Carl around, to come on the world. We are very happy about his birth!
Also the open garden day can take place.

July-August: Time to celebrate! The people of Chemnitz celebrate in the most beautiful summer weather
for 24 days! The hot summer makes our vineyards hard. The months-long drought sometimes causes sunburn on the grapes.
Our freshly planted vines have to be watered to prevent them from drying out.

September: We start harvesting the first grapes. Despite the drought we can harvest good qualities in the vineyard!
The wine festivals in Bielefeld and immediately afterwards in Seligenstadt take place! It starts to rain.

October: The first young wines ferment diligently! On October 2, we wanted to read the last grapes at the grape harvest festival. But it rains!
A few days later we finish the harvest. We are very pleased with the new vintage, despite the heat in summer and wetness in autumn!

November: For the winter wine tasting in Chemnitz we can present our vegan organic wines in the Ratsstuben.
Our big rebuilding and renovation work in the courtyard in Flomborn is finished. Philipp, Alexandra and Carl move into their new home.

December: We go again to Langen to the Christmas market and create the Feierabend-Glühwein in Flomborn.
And then comes the contemplative time! We are looking forward to the Christmas goose and a special celebration with the family.

We thank you for the trustful cooperation, the great conversations and your purchase.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a good start into 2023!

Best regards from Flomborn in Rheinhessen,

Family Bernhard-Räder
