A HISTORY of WINE WITH PASSION and TRADITION
The Peter Mertes winery is a family enterprise steeped in tradition, with headquarters in Bernkastel-Kues on the Mosel. Since 1924 the Peter Mertes Winery has been working to create only the best selected wines from Germany. Peter Mertes is one of the few large scale bottling companies in Germany which carries out its own wine-growing with a tremendous focus on sustainability which has a positive influence on environment and quality of our wines.
HOW QUALITY and SUSTAINABILITY SET PETER MERTES APART
With sustainable quality, environmental and safety management, we set ourselves aside by providing products to our customers that measure up to the highest of expectations. This is achieved by selecting the best growers in the Mosel who meet the strict standards our winery has put in place, hand selection of grapes by wine type, hygienic storage facilities with modern equipment from tanks to special pumps and guaranteeing all wine is checked and certified by experienced and highly trained cellar masters prior to bottling. Additionally, all wines are checked in our state of the art laboratory to ensure stability. High tech bottling lines also guarantee gravity and pressure fillers that fully displace oxygen and ensure a C02 blanket protects the wine for longer shelf life. Last but not least, wines are stored in a state of the art cellar.
DORNFELDER-The trademark German red grape varietal Dornfelder has a lovely purity of soft red berry fruit. Integrated soft tannins combined with forward fruit flavors make for a perfectly balanced everyday sipping wine.
Pairing Suggestions: Great with grilled red meat, sausage and chicken. Best served slightly chilled.
