With the very promising motto “Experience wine where it grows”, winemaker and wine merchant Ludolf Artymowytsch invites you to visit his Weingut Klosterhof Töplitz winery. There is a long tradition of wine growing on the island of Töplitz near Potsdam which, believe it or not, is surrounded by six bodies of water. As far back as the 13th century, Cistercian monks from Lehnin monastery cultivated vines at the vineyard. Since 2012, wine connoisseur Ludolf Artymowytsch has continued the tradition with his team, aided by the mild island climate.
The winery is the first and only organic winery in Brandenburg. 7,000 vines currently grow in the 2.5 hectare vineyard and this is eventually to be increased to 9,000. These six varieties thrive in the sunny, south-facing location of Töplitz: Bacchus, Grauburgunder, Riesling and Weißburgunder (all white) and Regent and Saint Laurent (both red).
Not using chemicals or synthetic plant protection and fertilisation, as required for organic growing, requires a great deal of expertise. Biological methods help fight pests, papilionaceous plants between the rows ensure enough nutrients and weeds that grow too close to the vines are kept in check mechanically.
Traditional grape harvesting
And harvesting the grapes traditionally requires lots of manual work and trained helpers. The wines are then fermented and matures in stainless steel tanks in the cellar; a selection of the Regent wines mature in traditional wooden barrels. The restaurant is at the foot of the vineyard right by the cellar.
of the vineyard and wine cellars are available on request. On these viewings, visitors learn about the entire wine-making process.
The restaurant is open every weekend and on public holidays, seating 60 inside and up to 120 on the terrace. The kitchen places great value on regional and seasonal food; the weekly menu is constantly changing. Visitors can sample the wines and enjoy a small meal. In good weather, you can go up to the pergola in the vineyard. The kitchen will provide you with a picnic basket with wine, food and cutlery.
A changing range of wines and wine specialities can be ordered.
