About the winery:
Winery Bruker, based in Großbottwar, is known for its curious and experimental handling of wines. This is reflected in particular in the interesting and varied cuvees. Owner Markus Bruker manages the family business in its fourth generation. Despite his innovative approach to wine production, it is important for him to preserve and maintain the family tradition. This, he says, is only possible with viticulture, which respects and protects nature. The winery Bruker is therefore currently in the process of certifying its biodynamic agriculture.
Best conditions for the typical Wuertemberg (Baden wineregion) varieties are Riesling, Trollinger and Lemberger. But there are also vineyards with Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon, which creates exciting accents in the cuvées of the winery.
Wuertemberg area counts 11.500 hectares and a production of 1.00.000 hectoliters of wine per year and is a medium-sized wine growing region. Two thirds is red wine of which 23% of Trollinger grapes, 17% Schwarzriesling and 12% Lemberger. For white wine one mainly uses Riesling, about 20%.
