- Working on a property founded in 1655, 14th generation vintner, Gerd Petri, shifted his family winery from bulk sales to estate bottled wine gradually since taking over in 1977. Farmed without chemicals, the grapes for Petri's Scheurebe (Dr. George Scheu's circa 1916 cross of Riesling and ???) are botrytisized, raisined and the finished wine clocks in at over 150 g/l of residual sugar.
