The Meyer-Näkel estate dates back to 1950, with the marriage of Paula Meyer and Willibald Näkel. The domaine is now in its third generation, led by their grandchildren . The enduring work over the last 70 years have truly solidified the domaine of Meyer-Näkel within the top echelon,not just of German Pinot Noir producers, but also globally. The Ahr is situated just north of 50 ° latitude, making it Germany’s Northernmost red wine area, and with about only 550 hectares, it is also the smallest. Spatbürgunder is the German naming for Pinot Noir, and with the Meyer-Näkel approach it truly displays a world class example.
