Wine growing tradition since more than 600 years

With its proud age of over 665 years, Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt is considered one of the oldest wineries in the Moselle winegrowing region. Even today, four former Maximiner monasteries - with vineyard holdings and absolute top sites on the Moselle, Saar and Ruwer - form the foundation of the winery. These include the Josephshof in Graach as well as the Domklausenhof in Piesport on the Moselle, the Abteihof in Oberemmel on the Saar and the St. Irminenhof in Kasel on the Ruwer.

Superb Riesling wines from premium vineyards

The Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt winery is also one of the most traditional wineries in the Mosel wine region. Since 1349, it has been synonymous with great wine enjoyment, and since the end of the 18th century, it has concentrated on Riesling. Annegret Reh-Gartner took over the estate from her father in 1983. Thanks to her constant pursuit of quality, which led to a reduction in the size of the farm, good customer contacts and the enjoyment of wine, she has helped the Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt winery to gain national and international recognition. In addition to three Gault Millau awards, the member of the German Winegrowers' Association (VDP) can look forward to many other awards. Annegret Reh-Gartner managed the estate for 33 years (until 2016) with great passion, entrepreneurial foresight and commitment. In July 2020, Dr. Karsten Weyand took over the management of the domain.

Sustainable winemaking results in extraordinary wines from steep slopes

Today, the management is in the hands of Dr. Karsten Weyand. He runs the winery with its own bottling at the castle, in collaboration with the Kesselstatt team. In total, the estate has 46 hectares on the Moselle, Saar and Ruwer rivers, with an exceptional range of top sites in the three river valleys of the wine region. This unique potential of terroirs and the constant demand for high quality wines have made the estate internationally renowned. A lot of love and passion is invested in the production and maturation of dry, long-keeping wines, whose unmistakable, mineral and delicate style, typical of the Moselle, Saar and Ruwer regions, is and remains essential and with which no other wine region can compete. The Kesselstatt team relies on natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks (spontaneous fermentation), as well as on traditional wooden barrels for the grand cru wines. A region with potential for great dry wines that do not shine by their alcohol, but by their elegance and minerality.

Winemaking philosophy and quality management

Fermented spontaneously, the wines of Kesselstatt have a stubborn nature that is worth discovering. Quality is a priority. That's why careful manual harvesting and careful selection on the sloping vineyards are part of the daily wine routine, as is the care of particularly old and valuable Riesling vines. Quality can be further improved by viticultural measures such as bunch splitting and green harvesting to reduce yields, as well as leaf removal from the bunch area in early September to reduce botrytis attack. In addition, care is taken to preserve the natural environment of the vines. In order to guarantee perfect quality management in the vineyard and thus enable the production of an exceptional wine, the winemaking team at Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt carries out a strict classification of the terroirs, in accordance with its membership in the Association of Classified German Wine Estates (VDP). Thus, the Riesling impresses with its excellent quality, its elegant minerality and its incomparable lightness.

Expressive wines with terroir characteristics

A lot of manual work is required in the steep slopes of the Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt winery. Soils and vines must be cared for in the best possible way, taking into account the weather conditions. Yield-reducing methods such as grape splitting and green harvesting increase the quality of the remaining grapes, while foliage work ensures good yields. At harvest, the grapes are once again rigorously selected so that only the best grapes become wine. Fermentation is as spontaneous as possible and usually in stainless steel tanks, so that the special characteristics of the terroir are preserved. The Grosses Gewächse of the Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt winery are predominantly aged in wooden barrels. Due to the long fine yeast storage, the wines gain in complexity.

The Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt winery cultivates a total of 46 hectares on the Moselle, Saar and Ruwer rivers, including numerous top sites. The soils are characterized by slate and give the Rieslings a pleasant minerality. Juicy, with fine fruit aromas, the entry-level cuvées offer uncomplicated enjoyment. The VDP Domain wines follow in the quality pyramid with a concentrated and racy Riesling from old vines. The VDP.Ortswein Riesling from Kasel impresses with its aromas of exotic fruits and its enormously long finish. For a special treat, the connoisseur reaches for the VDP.Großes Gewächs from the Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt winery and lets the minerality of the filigree Riesling "Piesporter Goldtröpfchen" dance on the tongue.
