The Growers > Weingut von Hövel
Since taking over the estate from his father in 2010, Max von Kunow has radically changed it. Not only has he considerably enlarged it by buying the moribund Schmidt-Reuter estate, but his style is very different. Viticulture is now close to organic (he does not use herbicides or pesticides), and he makes a range of dry wines – a style which did not interest his father. He also uses natural yeasts and does a pre-fermentation maceration of the grapes.
