Vineyard Info

Our family has made wine for 400 years and our wine tradition dates back to the 17th century. Our steep slopes produce Riesling wines of top quality, grown in harmony with Nature, entailing lots of time-consuming manual labor, and it is these values we seek to preserve. Our wines are timeless, just like our vineyards. Our wines are made by individualists for individualists, produced by progressive traditionalists for people who are passionate about wine, and who understand and cherish the value of heritage.

Selbach-Oster cultivates 21 hectares (51 acres) in some of the best steep slopes on the Mosel: 98 percent are planted with Riesling, 2 percent Pinot Blanc. Many of our vineyards are ungrafted, some up to 100 years old, and these venerable vines yield highly aromatic fruit from small, thick-skinned juicy berries. Our focus on quality starts with low yields and meticulous care in each detail of working the vines, entailing an enormous amount of hard physical work – particularly in our steep slopes. This is especially true during harvest when we pick the grapes by hand in multiple passes in our steep slopes. The Riesling Classic vineyards grow on a soil of weathered slate, mixed with loam.
