WHERE AN INCOMPARABLE RIVER LANDSCAPE GIVES WINE ITS NAME AND TASTE.
The Mosel winds its way through the steep mountain slopes in tight loops. It is supported in this effort by the Saar and Ruwer. Extremely steep slate slopes, fertile alluvial tongues and gently rising hills are the products of a long joint effort by the three rivers. The motifs, whether from the banks or from the water, change constantly. The landscape, however, produces not only varied and flattering views, but equally flattering wines. As varied and individual as the mountains and villages appear, so diverse are the vineyard sites.
The uniqueness of the landscape makes Mosel wines something special: The steep slopes favour a mild and balanced climate, while the sunlight on the slopes is very intense. The Mosel does the rest: the river acts as a mirror, providing the grapes with even more sun. The various slate formations nourish the grapes with minerals and thus shape the typical taste of Mosel wines.
