16 years ago, winery owner Gerhard Ensing transferred from potato, beet and grain farmer to viticulture. He started with six grape varieties that produced a prize-winning quality. 

What makes these wines unique? 

The quality of the wines is partly achieved by the lime-rich soil on which the grapes grow. They are cultivated in a highly skilled and professional manner.  

The grapes are grown in a sustainable / environmentally friendly manner.


Mechanical weed control is used and because of the resistant grape varieties, the crop protection is also as environmentally friendly as possible.

The vintage of September 2019
Solaris is the first grape harvested. The warm summer has made it ripe from the beginning of September. Unfortunately, this grape has also suffered from sunburn which makes the grapes useless. Harvesting takes place manually, picking 50% of the ripened grapes in the first round.

 

The pickers carefully remove the damaged grapes from the bunches, then put the harvested grapes into buckets.

  1. Harvested grapes are collected in containers

  2. Emptying the containers in the transport boxes

  3. Preparing the trailer with transport crates for transport to the winemaker

The winery covers 3 acres with approximately 4000 vines per acre.

Production: approximately 15.000 bottles per year

Upon arrival at the winemaker, the grapes are weighed and mechanically stripped of stalks and iniquities. Then the pressing of the grapes follows and the grape juice is pumped to the fermentation tanks. Here is where the winemaker gets to work.


After fermentation, purification and maturation, the wine is stored and bottled after 1 à 2 years. Some of the wines, however, mature in oak barrels (Barrique) to obtain a finer aroma.

Port is originally from Portugal, from the DOC Porto which is located in the north of Portugal, but now Port is also made in the Netherlands. Port is a red, white and sometimes rosé fortified wine with an alcohol percentage of around 18 to 20%.

Port is usually sweet, but there is also a dry variety. The winery in the Achterhoek also produces an excellent Port wine now however, only the wine from the DOC Porto can be called Port. If the Port comes from another region or country, it may only be called a ‘port-style wine’.
