A paradisel and landscape for wines of character in Trittenheim

Located on the southern Middle Mosel, the Ansgar Clüsserath winery is in Trittenheim, where steep slopes with slate soils and plenty of sunshine create a unique terroir that produces top wines. The winery focuses on the cultivation of Riesling wines, which are vinified dry, as Kabinett, Spätlese or Auslese. The extraordinary quality of these wines is convincing.

Finest Riesling wines from the steep vineyards of Trittenheim

In Trittenheim, the vines of the Ansgar Clüsserath winery are located in the top Altärchen and Apotheke sites. In the steep slopes of the Trittenheimer Apotheke, the vines root deep in the Devonian slate soil and benefit from the stored heat that the soil gives off at night. A powerful, mineral Riesling is produced here. The less steep Altärchen site is enriched with loamy river sediments and produces light wines with a refreshing citrus aroma.

Trittenheimer Apotheke - Elegant and mineral wines from the Middle Moselle

The Trittenheimer Apotheke stands out as one of the best terroirs in the Middle Moselle. The vineyards with a slope of more than 70° still require a lot of hard work from the winegrower despite the consolidation of the vineyards. This 68.5 hectare first class vineyard probably owes its name to the dialect of the inhabitants of Trittenheim rather than to its therapeutic properties. The words "abteilich", "Abtei", "abtlich" probably gave rise to "Apotheke".

The dominant soil type here is also slate. The weathering soils of blue-gray and dark schist are shallow and partly pebbled. The grape varieties grown in the "Trittenheimer Apotheke" area produce structured wines (mainly Rielsing) with a marked acidity and good ripeness potential, which are elegant and mineral in appearance.

Trittenheimer Altärchen

The vineyard "Trittenheimer Altärchen" is one of the most famous vineyards of the Middle Moselle community Trittenheim. The vineyards belonging to this vineyard site are mainly located on the village side of the Moselle, downstream on the left side of the Moselle. This vineyard consistently produces a beautiful Riesling typical of the Moselle.

The soil on which the vines grow consists of the finest rock layers, which were accumulated by alluvial deposits of the Moselle over the centuries. Thus, the superficial layers of shale warm up easily in the sun, while the deeper, heavier layers ensure the supply of the roots and counteract too rapid drying out on warm summer days.

Modern methods joined by traditional values

Today, at the Ansgar Clüsserath winery, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, work is carried out according to contemporary methods that are skillfully combined with time-honored values. That is why Eva Clüsserath's wines cause a sensation. In the cellar, too, the emphasis is on fermentation with natural yeasts and aging in wooden barrels. A long yeast storage contributes to the terroir-accentuated character of her wines. Today, the winery cultivates 3.9 hectares of vineyards, most of which are dedicated to the cultivation of Riesling. The other varieties such as Pinot Blanc, Kerner and Müller-Thurgau are also represented in very small quantities.
