Description

In 1999, swiss born Daniel Vollenweider devoted himself to a dream: to run his own estate and grow Riesling wines that are crystal-clear, no-nonsense, yet sensual and lush all at once.

What started with close to zero money, but an overwhelming passion on 2.5 acres in the half-forgotten Wolfer Goldgrube, is one of the most renowned estates of the middle Moselle Valley today, highly decorated and of worldwide reputation. The current approx. 12.4 acres of vineyards—mostly classified as steep or extremely steep slopes and not subjected to land consolidation—keep a high percentage of very old, ungrafted Riesling vines. They bear dry, sweet and noble sweet growths that are amongst the very best of the region. And that demonstrate impressively the potential of the vineyards spreading round the once world-famous wine trading town of Traben-Trarbach. Winery Note
