Galerie-Riesling wine estate Clüsserath-Eifel

In 1760 the ancestors of today’s proprietor of the estate, Gerhard Eifel, began to grow vines on the famous steep slopes of Apotheke & Altärchen. 3.2 ha of the estate’s total vineyard holdings of 3.8 ha lie on steep slopes. They can only be tended with manual labour.

The vines are pruned to just one fruit cane (tenoning) to restrict yields. Manual picking is regarded as indispensable for high wine quality. Fermentation and storage before bottling take place in stainless steel vessels, with capacity varying between 280 and 3000 litres. The musts from the different sites and parcels are all vinified and bottled separately.

Eichelmann Wine Guide 2012

„….the wines of Gerhard Eifel are classic Mosel Rieslings – sometimes still inaccessible when young, but becoming wonderfully elegant and animating as they mature, ….the style of the house can be recognised in every single wine.“

Highlights

At the Galerie-Riesling estate we hold a tasting event every day of the week at 17.30. (Sundays by appointment).

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).
