Weingut Markus Molitor

About us

The wine estate of Markus Molitor is located amidst the Wehlener Klosterberg vineyards in the middle Mosel region.

Along the river on more than 25 spectacular steep-sloped sites (partially planted with very old vines) Riesling, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay grapes are grown. Uncompromising cultivation by hand and absolute respect for nature are hallmarks of Markus Molitor.

Due to a late harvest and strict selection of the individual grapes extremely low yields are achieved. A very important part of his philosophy is naturalness, terroir, complexity and ageing potential.

All wines are fermented spontaneously in the traditional manner in large wooden barrels without the use of stabilizing measures or additives.

Markus Molitor wines incorporate the almost infinite range of flavors and styles found in Mosel Rieslings – a unique balance of fruit and minerality, sweetness and acidity.

Pinot Noir Haus Klosterberg

Meticulous vineyard management and stringent selection at harvest led to healthy and fully ripened grapes. This multi-faceted Pinot Noir derived from spontaneous fermentation, with total maceration lasting 3 ½ weeks, and was refined by subsequent maturation in oak barrels.

2020 Pinot Blanc Wehlener Klosterberg*

The grapes were harvested in October. After a gentle crushing, the 100% healthy grapes received several hours of skin contact to extract aroma and minerals. A slow, cool, spontaneous fermentation allowed the wine’s fruity aromatics to fully develop. Thereafter, it matured on its lees in oak barrels and stainless steel tanks for several months.

2020 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese*** DRY

The dry 2020 Riesling Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese *** (White Capsule) shows great purity paired with intensity, depth and noblesse, exhibiting ripe and concentrated but savory Riesling fruit intertwined with flinty notes of finely weathered blue slate and lush peach aromas. Rich and intense but highly refined and elegant on the palate, this is a crystalline, very delicate and saline-finishing ZSU with great terroir expression and balance.
