Three diverse valleys

Producing unique Rieslings that capture the distinctive personality of our great vineyard sites on the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer has been our mission at Weingut Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt for the last 650 years - and is the key challenge that we face each and every day. Come and join us on a journey to discover the diversity of the three valleys.

  • Mosel

    Our vineyards are situated in the heart of the Mittelmossel - a gorgeous landscape blessed with a perfect microclimate, steep south-facing slopes with gradients of up to 70 degrees, and quick-drying, rocky slate soils.

    Long vegetation periods and the warming influence of the river below are additional factors that make this the ideal plave to produce great, inimitable Rieslings.
  • Saar

    Wine lovers the world over admire Saar Riesling for its minerality, acidity and fruit expression.

    The grapes taht grow along the Saar and its tributaries ripen slowly and gently on account of a slightly cooler microclimate and a higher altitude compared to the Mosel. Consequently, Saar wines have fine fruit acidity, pronounced minerality as well as spice, finesse and transparency born of the slate on which they are grown.
  • Ruwer

    Our wines from the diminutive Ruwer Valley grow at quite high elevations - and the Ruwer itself is a stream that has verly little effect on the microclimate.

    Consequently, conditions are even a touch cooler than on the Mosel or the Saar. This, combined with cold winds and particularly rocky dark slate soils, results in distinctive, delicate Rieslings of incredible finesse and subtlety.
Say what is true,
drink what is clear,
eat what is properly cooked,
love what is rare.
