The story of the winery starts almost a century ago in 1930
The history of the Paul Knod winery began in 1930 by Jakob Knob. Later in 1963, his son, Paul Knod, acquired the winemaking business and changed the name of the estate. He also dedicated himself solely in wine production and abolished the livestock farming. In the following years, in the steep slopes of Mosel, land consolidation took place, and Paul purchased more land for grape farming. Following the footsteps of his father and grandfather, Rainer Knod acquired the winery in 1995 and introduced many advanced methods in wine production. So far, he has blessed the winery with many awards under his ownership.
The main cultivated varieties are Riesling, Grauburgunder, Blauer, and Spätburgunder
With modern knowledge of viticulture and great foresight, Rainer cultivates his vineyards with a broad spectrum of grapes. His selection includes excellent Riesling, Grauburgunder, and Blauer, along with fruity Spätburgunder and Rivaner. He, along with his experienced staff, carefully selects the berries during harvesting season through manual handpicking to produce delicious wines. The wines include top-class red, white, and sparkling wines, together with aroma-rich rose and dessert wines.
Boasting a magnificent view of Mosel valley, the family-owned Falklay guesthouse is nestled in between the vineyards and the estate. This 1999-built farmhouse, laced with modern facilities, consists of four well-furnished rooms for guests. The apartments are equipped with a private bathroom, a TV, and free WiFi. Each room has a balcony overlooking the beautiful landscapes.
