Weingut Jochen Beurer, Kernen-Stetten

After putting aside the idea of being a BMX champion in 1997, Jochen Beurer settled in Kernen Stetten just outside of Stuttgart, where his family owned some vineyards. His father was on the board of the local cooperative, but Jochen decided to produce his own wines.

This guy is full of energy! Jochen is always walking around with a smile on his face and is most likely to be the last man standing at parties. But at the same time he is very precise and correct when it comes to his wines, as the Germans are expected to be.

In 2003 he started working organically with his 10 hectares. He only uses native yeasts and converted fully to biodynamics in 2008. Beurer’s steep slopes are on a variety of limestone from different ages.
