The Mosel is Germany’s oldest wine growing region and due to the moderate climate offers the best growing conditions for the Riesling vine. With its steep slate slopes, the Middle-Mosel offers this grape variety a long ripening season with excellent results. VILLA HUESGEN owns vineyards in the sites of Trabener Würzgarten, Enkircher Zeppwingert and Enkircher Steffensberg. Those steep and steepest sites are located south and south-west and were highest rated by Prussian Napoleonic classification from 1886. Here, we find the black-blue, grey and copper-red famous Devon slate that gives the VILLA HUESGEN Riesling its unique taste as it stores the heat and delivers the minerals. Old vines with an age of over 120 years produce concentrated wines with a high ageing potential.
