Riesling is the most important German grape variety and at the same time our hobbyhorse. Riesling reflects the terroir like no other wine - in all consistency, in all flavors. And this is exactly what makes the cultivation of Riesling as a grape variety and the production of Riesling wines so fascinating and exciting. The Riesling enables us to bring the character of a vineyard into the bottle with all its facets and this is exactly our passion.
The Riesling as a grape variety prefers climatically cooler wine-growing regions like the ones we have on the Mosel. Generally, the Riesling is a slowly ripening grape variety (in the 80s the Riesling is often not fully ripened). On the steep slopes of the Mosel you will find optimal conditions for achieving physiological ripeness, in which the intensive aroma formation takes place. The steep slopes have a very good orientation to the sun, which favors the ripening process in months of September and October. On the other hand, the slate stores the daytime heat very well and releases it back to the vines at night. The Mosel as some kind of heat store does the rest.
Our Mosel Rieslings convince with a fine citrus-fruit aroma and balanced sweet-acid play. The wines have received numerous awards and are of exceptional quality. Our spectrum of Riesling ranges from racy dry wines to the liquid gold from the steep slopes, the Trockenbeerenauslese.
