Wine estate Merkelbach

On 1.9 ha of steep slopes we grow only Riesling and produce about 20,000 wines annually. The distinctive flavour of our wines owes itself to the weathered slate soil as well as to the intricacies of the site Ürziger Würzgarten. Built with local slate, our historic house was bought by our great-grandfather in 1867. Part of our vineyard is still planted with vines on their original rootstock. Our wines are mainly vinified in traditional wooden casks. Noble sweet Auslesen are our speciality.
