Since the romans, wine is cultivated here in Piesport

Today, Piesport is a typical region for the cultivation of Riesling, which flourishes particularly well on the deep schist soils, which act as a heat reservoir for the vines and ensure a good water supply. Large parts of the best terroirs in this region rich in Riesling tradition are owned by the Hain winery.

Vinification close to nature

Although rich in variation, the wine of Weingut Hain always retains its authentic style. Therefore, nature-loving cultivation in the vineyard is written in capital letters in the family business. At the same time, a good humus supply of the soil and optimal water balance are particularly important for the winemaker. To reduce yields, the vines are pruned according to quality and thinned out as needed. During the harvest, Gernot Hain relies exclusively on a late, selective hand harvest.

Vinification and varieties

In addition to the typical Moselle Riesling, we also grow Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The vinification at Domaine Hain is done in a traditional and gentle way in a cool and humid vaulted cellar. After a controlled fermentation, the white and red wine can mature in peace. Gernot Hain ages his white wine mainly in stainless steel tanks, sometimes in wooden barrels, and the pinot noir in barrels. The Hain estate produces wines with very little ageing, which are especially marked by the particular minerality and character of the Piesport shale soils.

Vineyards

The winery cultivates several parcels in the best vineyards around Piesport.

Piesport Goldtröpfchen 

TheTerroir extends in a southeasterly exposure from the Piesport district of Ferres to the Moselloreley. The vineyards are oriented to receive sufficient sunlight from summer to late fall to grow aromatic grapes. The forestation above the site provides good water management, so that the vineyards are sufficiently supplied with water even in times of drought. The soil of Piesporter Goldtröpfchen consists of blue-gray Devonian slate and a partially very high percentage of fine soil. The result is very mineral Rieslings that develop perfectly over the years.

The Domherr vineyard is located within the Goldtröpchen directly on the Moselle and, like the Piesporter Goldtröpchen, is one of the best vineyard sites. Due to its south-southwestern location and the slate soils, it produces Rieslings with pronounced fruitiness and minerality, which know how to convince with their power and strength.
