Mosel. A Wine Heritage for over 2000 Years.

Spectacular Landscape

No other river than the scenic Mosel has had such an impact on the evolution of viticulture in Germany. Ever since the Roman era vines have grown here on steep slopes surrounded by a spectacular landscape. The interplay of slate, sunshine and vines create a distinctive taste profile. First and foremost stands Riesling, which inspires wine experts from around the world. We share this enthusiasm and consistently practice it as  „Rieslingexperten“.

Enormous Diversity

Our core competence does not exclude diversity. Regional specialities, such as Elbling from the chalky soil of the Upper Mosel, complete our product range.
