The mild climate of the Mosel Valley and the weathered slate soils provide ideal growing conditions for Riesling. This is why our estate is fully focussed on this variety. As early as the beginning of the 1980s Ernst Clüsserath decided to cultivate the growth of natural wild herbs between the rows of vines to produce a living environment for small insects and microorganisms which would help to restore a harmonious natural balance.
Eichelmann Wine Guide 2017
„With the vintage of 2016 the estate has once again produced a remarkably harmonious range of wines. A juicy sparkling wine combines freshness with a certain richness while managing to retain its animating character, a good juicy house Riesling in litre bottles is well above average quality. The almost dry Spätlese from cask number 19 appears still a little unsettled, but shows promising potential. Special credit must be given to the juicy and not too sweet Spätlese feinherb, the Kabinett shows excellent balance. The Auslese designated for auction exhibits a delightful fragrance of peach and nectarine – it’s an elegant, serene and quite reserved noble sweet wine.“
Stuart Pigott in his book „Wein spricht deutsch“
„These are taut and linear wines, which always show a note of individuality.“
We offer wine tastings and cellar visits by prior appointment, as well as walks in the vineyard in cooperation with ambassadors of Mosel wine and culture. In the neighbouring village of Neumagen-Dhron visitors can enjoy a particular highlight, a river trip on a replica of the original Roman river boat “Stella Noviomagi”.
Visitors keen on sport or history will find a comprehensive choice of interesting tracks for cycling or walking (among others: Römersteig, Klettersteig, Thörnischer Ritsch, Moselschleife, Mosel cycle track), as well as cultural relics (Hinkelstein, Roman sarcophagus, old ferry towers, old station, Roman grape press).
