The K.F. Groebe winery was founded in 1625 in Westhofen. The grapes thrive in centuries-old Westhofener vineyards on soils that have been maintained by the family Groebe for generations.
Today, eight hectares of vineyards are cultivated, located exclusively in the best old Westhofener core layers and are planted with traditional varieties. Winemaker Friedrich Groebe follows the principle that good wine needs philosophy and craftsmanship, but no technology. So it is only logical that the winery KF Groebe counts as one of the founding members of the “Environmentally friendly controlled wine eV”.
Due to strong pruning of the vines in spring, the renunciation of mineral fertilization and the similar natural greening of the rows of vines, a competition arises in the vineyard. The vine suffers and searches for its food in the deeper layers of the soil. With the necessary patience, the grapes are harvested by hand, fermented in old oak barrels and drawn in bottles at the right time only after several months of maturation.
The K.F. Groebe winery is a member of the Association of German Predicate Wine Estates (VDP) and has classified vineyards in the positions of Westhofener Aulerde, Westhofener Kirchspiel and Westhofener Morstein.
