The origin of the winery "Fritz Haag - Dusemonder yard" in the community Brauneberg
(was called Dusemond until 1925) in the German growing area Moselle
goes back to the year 1605. After apprenticeship in Austria, Wilhelm Haag took over in 1957. After years of apprenticeship in renowned wineries in Germany and South Africa, studying at the FH Geisenheim
with a degree as a certified oenologist and five years as a manager of the wineries Privy Councilor J. Wegeler Erben
The company has been managed by its son Oliver Haag since the beginning of 2005. The vineyards cover 12.5 hectares of vineyards, of which eight acres in the Brauneberg top locations Juffer
and Juffer sundial
, The extraordinary showpiece in the Juffer sundial is a 7,000 m² plot with 80-year-old vines. The vintage is done by hand in mostly four passes. In the first round about 20% of the grapes from which the acid-stressed estate wine is produced are selected. The rest of the grapes are destined for the predicate wines and, if possible, stay on the hive much longer. The winery specializes in dry, fine-fruity to noble sweet top-crops. The predicate wines are marketed under the respective vineyard designation, the quality wines under the estate name. The winery is a member of VDP
(Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter). Wilhelm Haag was chairman of the VDP-Moselle for many years and is now honorary chairman.
