Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt GmbH
Producing unique Rieslings that capture the distinctive personality of our great vineyard sites on the MOSEL, SAAR and RUWER has been our mission at wine-estate Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt for more than 650 years - and is both a challenge and an opportunity we face every day.
Since 2005 we are VDP-member.
Currently we are cultivating 50 hectares.
35 hectares of our vineyards are located in 15 different VDP.GROSSE LAGEN, including our monopole site JOSEPHSHÖFER on the Mosel (5 ha), Kasel NIES'CHEN on the Ruwer, SCHARZHOFBERGER on the Saar.
Grape varieties: Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir (planted in 2022)
We tend our steep vineyards by hand and winemaking in Schloss Marienlay in the Ruwer-valley is thoughtfull and careful.
Our wines are authentic and terroir-driven: vibrant, fruity and mineral-inflected Riesling with stimulating acidity; creamy and harmonious Pinots.
Our exclusive importer for France is Marc Moignoux, Terres des Vins

The first sip captures this Riesling Kabinett in all its glory, with a juicy mouthfeel enveloping the palate to reveal passion fruit notes that will intensify with each further sip. The flavours are dancing, vibrant and sensual.

A classic representative of its vineyard. Very complex on the nose, with apple, apricot and gooseberry aromas intertwined.
