Review of the year and Christmas greetings 2020

Dear wine friends!

An extraordinary year is coming to an end and we take a brief look back:

January – March: the annual pruning of the vines is on the agenda. Rüdiger and Philipp are outside every day and happy about a mild winter. Besides working in the vineyards, we bottle the first 2019 wines. We are proud of this vintage – it shows its aromatic diversity in the different grape varieties. We enjoy the great Shrovetide days and celebrate the fifth season without any worries. In March, the international wine fair “ProWein” in Düsseldorf is cancelled. A first sign that no normal year is coming up for all of us.  

April – June: European border traffic is restricted and we have to overcome many bureaucratic hurdles so that our seasonal workers are finally allowed to arrive. Since tying up the vines can’t wait, all family members help out here. The lockdown ensures that our open day on May 01 and also the open garden day are cancelled. Only from the 18th of May we are allowed to welcome you as our guests again. Nevertheless, visitors are unsettled, cancel or postpone their coming to the next year.

July – August: Time to celebrate wine festivals! Usually! This year everything is really different. Only the people of Chemnitz dare. With a wine festival of a special kind we experience many interested visitors and “controlled” wine festival atmosphere. 

During this time we are happy to welcome many guests in the winery who have moved their vacations to Flomborn.

September: On September 01, the grape harvest begins in 2020. After a dry and sunny summer we have harvested fantastic grapes! The grapes were able to ripen physiologically at late summer high temperatures and thus develop their full potential of aromas and flavors. 

October: The young wines in our cellar are fermenting diligently – we give them the rest they need to develop their potential. On October 3, at the time of the harvest festival, which takes place in accordance with hygiene regulations, the last grapes are harvested by hand. Very early harvest is finished this year. We are extremely satisfied with yield and quality! 

November: It is the time of the wine tours. All wine presentations and the upcoming Advent and Christmas markets are unfortunately cancelled. Construction work begins on our second new building at the winery. There will be living space for farm successors Philipp and Alexandra as well as new outdoor toilets and a larger office. Be curious how the appearance of our winery will change once again through this building measure!

December: It’s not that far yet, but soon the festive season will come! And we can already look forward to the Christmas goose from Netzschkau in Saxony!

We thank you for the many nice encounters, your purchases and the trustful cooperation! We wish you a Merry Christmas and a good start into the new year 2021!

Best regards from Flomborn in Rheinhessen

Your family Bernhard-Räder

Autumn / Winter 2020

Dear friends of wine,

What a year this is!

In current times it is even more important to focus on the positive things. Therefore, we would like to tell you a little bit about how we have been doing lately and how the autumn in particular turned out for us.

Fortunately nature is not influenced by the virus. So the grape harvest started on September 01, 2020. After a dry and sunny summer we harvested fantastic grapes! The grapes were able to ripen physiologically at maximum temperatures in late summer and thus develop their full potential of aromas and taste. On 18.11. we harvested “last but not least” our Riesling by hand at Mordhohl.

In the cellar the bubbling and fermenting has slowed down in the meantime. The young wines can be tasted very well. Would you like to taste? The first 2020s are filled!

We recommend our package “The new ones”.

Summer / Autumn 2020

Dear wine lovers,

under Corona conditions, all our lives have changed.
We all act more flexibly and adapt to current events.
This is how the wonderful wine festival could be celebrated in Chemnitz. The cities of Bielefeld and Seligenstadt in Hesse have cancelled their wine festivals.
This is also the way our appointment calendars get mixed up. The guests have to cancel, or book again diligently. And we are happy about the nice response.

Our wine harvest festival on 03.10.20 will take place. We will limit the number of persons strongly. Therefore please ask for an additional date.

Many of our customers spend their holidays at home and enjoy our wine.
We would like to reward them for this:

Our special offer from 01. September to 01. November 2020 :
Order 60 bottles of organic wine or sparkling wine (0.75l bottles, or 1.0l bottles), and you will receive an immediate discount of 20,00 €, as well as a freight-free delivery.

Nature is not influenced by Corona. We are very much looking forward to the upcoming harvest, because the grapes present themselves beautifully.
The first clusters can already be nibbled. We will probably start with the harvest in the first days of September. That means for you, dear customers, soon there will be Federweisser again! You can buy it from our farm, or we will supply you in the Rhine-Main area when we leave for Seligenstadt on September 19th.

Kind regards, 

Family Bernhard-Räder
