Max von Kunow, owner of the von Hövel Estate in Oberemmel, just took over the former Schmitt-Reuter Estate in Krettnach, with a whopping 10 ha of vineyard in Niedermennig, Krettnach, Oberemmel and Wiltingen.

It seems that this will be part of a project to be run next to the historic von Hövel Estate, but Max did not want to disclose much details at this stage. He just said: “I am thrilled to have been able to take over these vineyards among which some first class parcels in the former Silberberg, a vineyard classified in the highest category in the taxation maps.” [Note: he refers to the "dark" part of what was simply called Crettnacherberg on this taxation map]
We will report on this exiting new project as soon as we will have more information and already look forward to tasting its produce next year!
