Vineyards and soils

THE VILLA HUESGEN TERROIR

The unique combination of steep slopes, slate soils, cool climate and grape variety give the VILLA HUESGEN wines their unmistakable character.
The location of the vineyard with the different soil types in which the vines are rooted, help shape the aromas, acidity and structure of the wine.

 

Trabener Wrzgarten sw

Trabener Wrgarten Blau Grau Schiefer 2 small

 

The VILLA HUESGEN vineyard site Trabener Würzgarten
nestles directly next to the twin town of Traben-Trarbach. This steep Moselle site with a slope of up to 44% and orientation to the west has a loose blue-grey slate. The soil, which is already heavily weathered in places, gives the wines their clear, cool and mineral structure. The wines are characterised by distinct smoky and herbaceous notes.

 

Trabener Wrzgarten sw

Trabener Wrgarten Blau Grau Schiefer 2 small

 

The VILLA HUESGEN Grand Cru site Enkircher Steffensberg
belongs to the highest level of the "Prussian site classification of 1868". With a slope of up to 38% and a southern exposure, it offers the vines an optimal sun exposure. The deep soil with good water supply consists of ferruginous red and grey slate and gives the wines their powerful structure and elegance.

 

Trabener Wrzgarten sw

Trabener Wrgarten Blau Grau Schiefer 2 small

 

The VILLA HUESGEN Grand Cru site Enkircher Zeppwingert
is located on the Starkenburg slope with a west-south-west orientation. The steepest and most terraced site with a slope of up to 51% has a quartzite-rich and ferruginous grey slate soil with a very high heat storage capacity. The vines, which are over 55 years old and are uncrafted, with their low yields produce unique and complex Rieslings. The vineyards are mainly cultivated organically and by hand. By the way, "Wingert" is considered the oldest German term for land planted with vines.

The VILLA HUESGEN Grand Cru site Ürziger Würzgarten
One of the most famous and unique vineyards of the Moselle is located at Ürzig and geologically belongs to the "Wittlicher Senke". The deep, stony, copper-red slate soil ("Rotliegendes") of volcanic origin, is characterised by its good water and heat storage capacity, as well as good aeration. The site is oriented south to east-south-east, with a slope of up to 69%. Exotic, spicy wines with elegant acidity and expressive site character are produced here, as well as a special ripening potential.
"The name of the vineyard refers to a method that was common until the 17th century of blending wines with herbs that were planted in a special spice garden" (from: Weinatlas Deutschland).

Wine growing

Craftmanship meets zeitgeist

VILLA HUESGEN wines are a result of a very high quality standard which is applied in the vineyards as well as in the cellar. Strict quantity restrictions combined with pruning and cutting out the leafs are normal procedures. The grapes are hand-picked in various selective stages. Only healthy and physiological ripe grapes are brought into the cellars where they are treated under ideal conditions. 

„To enjoy means commitment. You have to work hard to produce good quality. Our motto is: quality is produced in the vineyards and must be preserved in the cellars.“

Ahnengalerie Johann Wilhelm Huesgen
Tradition

Pioneers since the 18th century

Johannes Huesgen I (1697-1762) & Anna Sophia Schneegans

The Huesgen family looks back to a history of several hundred years. In 1735, Johannes Huesgen moved from the Netherlands to the Mosel and founded the wine trading estate Huesgen. He and his wife Angelika Schneegans started a tradition to cultivate wines on the Mosel. He found new ways to connect his trade with the world while still being connected with his hometown.

Johann Wilhelm Huesgen II (1739-1782) & Maria Angelika Huesgen, geb. Scheegans  (1741-1830)

While he expanded the estate with a 150 Fuder cellar and house in Trarbach located directly on the wine road to Frankfurt, the „Grand Dame“ represented the estate with charme, skill and charisma.  Even after the early death of her husband she continued the business. Her portrait stands for all ladies and mademoiselles of the Huesgen family and is used as role model for the Mademoiselle Riesling Sekt Méthode traditionelle.

Johann Wilhelm Huesgen III (1778-1862) & Christine Huesgen (1788-1817), geb.Böcking

Johann Wilhelm Huesgen III was distinguished by his knowledge and his vision. To avoid periods of crisis, he built a new branch in Cologne which via the Rhine River offered easier access to better trade routes. In 1826, Johann Wilhelm Huesgen installed an innovative “revenue-calculation system for vineyards”, and he connected the wine qualities with the planets. However, Christine was more grounded. She inherited for the Huesgen family the “Curpfaelzerhof” estate with the Enkircher Steffensberg, parts of which is today again in the possession of the family.

Adolph Huesgen IV 1816-1873 & Friederike Leipprand (-1903)

He founded the Adolph Huesgen wine company in 1869, managed to improve the trade networks of the business by using the improved railroad- and road network. His technical innovations helped to expand the business.

Adolph Huesgen V (1855-1949) & Ida Huesgen (1863-1930),  geb. Böcking

Nicknamed ‚Mosel Bismarck’ Adolph Huesgen V prepared the way for news directions in his generation. He was considered a great innovator for the wine cultivation, cellar-technique and wine trade . He built one of the largest wine estates on the Mosel, cultivated new vineyards in the estates Wiltingen, Kanzem and Sommerau. His wife Ida inherited the significant Geierslay estate for the family. In 1886 he built with 2000 Fuder (200.000 liters) one of the largest wine cellars, and in 1904 the Art Nouveau family home. 

Adolph Huesgen VI (1901-1945) & Lotte Huesgen (1899-), geb. Haussmann

He started to manage the business in 1925, but died at the age of only 44 during World War II. His wife Lotte took over the business and tradition as the mother of 3 children.

Adolph Huesgen VII (1935-2018) & Lotti Huesgen (1939-2013), geb. Simon

At the young age of 20 years Adolph VII took over the business and extended the trade internationally. In the 1970th, the collapse of the German wine market was a compelling reason to sell the wine estates. In that difficult period he and his wife Lotti didn’t loose their passion for the business, cultivated their business friendships with international partners and set the stage for the VILLA HUESGEN of today.

Villa Huesgen Jugendstil Loewenkopf
Art Noveau

Permanent and timeless

Each period has its own style. The Huesgen home as an Art Nouveau synthesis of the arts has mastered and survived the times, preserved its style and has the potential to reinvent itself all over again.

The Magic of Art Nouveau

The Art Nouveau was the last universal artistic style at the turn of the 20th century, practically engulfing the whole western civilization. The style criticized and caricatured the existing society.

The artistic models for the Art Noveau are the organic forms of Mother Nature, especially in the world of animals and plants with its winding, fluid lines. The style has also been influenced by the Japanese art too, with its two dimensional lines and space.

Art Noveau in Traben-Trarbach

Traben Trarbach was the second largest wine trading place town besides Bordeaux at the turn of the century. Traben-Trarbach is marked by its Art Noveau architecture. In 1883, the town got connected to the main railroad corridor between Berlin and Metz, enabled the wine trade to shipments all over the world, and thus created a class of wealthy wine merchants. A leading Art Noveau architect, Bruno Möhring (1863-1929) obtained the commission to build a bridge which connected Traben with Trarbach. Möhring met and connected well with the notabilities and got commissions to build many Art Noveau buildings, one of them Villa Huesgen. He designed the interieur as well as the gardens, creating a unique piece of Art. The property is located between the Mosel river and the railroad track. Next to the home is the building of the former winery, still recognizable by its outer walls. Remarkable is the former theatre hall, in which the guests of the house met for a formal entertainment.

Connecting people and nature

The ideal of Art Noveau is contemporary and has been greatly acknowledged by the members of the 8th generation of the Huesgen family. To incorporate nature in all aspects of the daily life is as important today as it was yesterday.  The VILLA HUESGEN team produces its wines with care and love, passion and the highest claim to their product, encouraging the customers, partners and gourmets to participate in the process. The results of our efforts can be tasted and enjoyed on the estate. Villa Huesgen is an open house, full of atmosphere and beauty, inviting you to spend some time together.
