Louis Guntrum Dornfelder Trocken
Dornfelder is a native German red grape, adapting to the cooler German climate, giving light to medium body reds with low tannins. This is made at a ‘Trocken‘ level, so fully dry. Cherry red colour, aromatic scent of red fruits, soft tannins and a powerful dry finish. Suits red meats (beef, venison) as well as mature cheeses and grilled vegetables. Also great served lightly chilled in summer.
Louis Guntrum was established in 1648, and since 2003 has been operated by Louis Konstantin Guntrum, who is the 11th generation of the Guntrum family to make wine. During the French Revolution, the Guntrum family fled across the Rhine river and temporarily relocated in Bensheim. In 1909, Louis Guntrum returned to the village of Nierstein and founded the Louis Guntrum winery as it is known today.
In February 1945, during World War II, U.S. General Patton occupied the winery and the family mansion, having crossed the Rhein river directly at the Louis Guntrum estate. The current generation is focused on producing high-quality wines that are created with passion and rooted in history. Modern cellar technology, combined with the best of traditional wine-making and philosophy have formed a harmonious relationship, and are responsible for the production of some of Germany ‘s finest wines.
