If you only have time to visit a few vineyards in FLX, make sure you make a reservation at Kemmeter Wines. Great wine starts with great grapes and the expression of the grape varietal, the climate in the year of harvest, terroir, and the passion of the winemaker. It is a true art form. Owner Johannes shows all of the above in the wines we sampled. I learned that different soil types vary in heat retention properties, hence giving the grapes a different quality in wine composition. These qualities can be depicted in the tasting: three Rieslings, all 2020 vintage having varying acidity/sweetness. Being a lover of Pinot, Johannes' passion for winemaking can be seen in the Pinot Noir Trio: a blend of three vintages (26% 2017, 28% 2019 and 46% 2020). This wine is elegant and showcases the delicate nature of the Pinot Noir grape perfectly. Visiting Kemmeter Wines was definitely a highlight of our trip!
If you're in this area looking for great wine, absolutely make a reservation to visit here. Johannes is one of the nicest guys, and is very easy to talk to. The tasting room is small, and there's a limited menu, but the experience is very personal and he takes his time to explain the wines and get to know you. Quality wine and quality people. One of my favorite wineries in the area. And of course I have to mention to stop for his wife's dumplings. They're fantastic.
We had a thoroughly engaging wine experience at Kemmeter Wines with Johannes, unlike any other winery we visited. We left with two bottles of wine, and a lot more new knowledge about wine than we expected. This would be the perfect place to start out a trip to the area - just be sure to make a reservation. Thank you for a great visit!
Simply the best in FLX! It was our favorite vineyard. My wife and I were introduced to this Winemaker by a dear friend and our experience here was amazing! Sans dumplings next door are the best too! We highly recommend it. This should be on every wine lovers hit list.
We had a great tasting experience this past Friday with Johannes. We came away with a different view of Riesling and wine from his method of doing a tasting. Many place we have been try to tell you what you are tasting and how to think about the wine. At Kemmeter that work is left to you - he takes you through the wines and lets you come up with your own view of what you are experiencing. It was such a rare opportunity to experience a tasting with the wine maker/owner. Also, please visit the dumpling business that his wife runs onsite. They were really good on a cold afternoon!
