Winery Böcking: at the beautiful Moselle

The roots of the Böcking winery can be traced to the early 1600s, when the family became active in trading business in Trarbach, purchasing what may be the oldest Riesling vineyard on the Mosel, the Trarbacher Ungsberg. The winery has been in the same family for almost 400 years. Today a new generation of Böckings owns and manages the vineyard combining tradition and history with an entrepreneurial vision to lead the family enterprise into the future and reestablish its international following.

Visit the Knight’s hall from the 14th century

This historic winery is at the “Rittersaal” a 14th-Century edifice, the oldest and largest building in the area. The Vineyard is cultivated within 7 acres of land that lies in Traben-Trarbach of Moselle region, which is considered as one of the finest Rieslings growing regions in the world. The plantings are 95% Riesling and 5% Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir). They have “Alte Reben” (old grape vines) from 40-90 years old, along with more recent plantings.

The team produces high-quality white and rosé wines

Visit the steepest vineyards in Europe

Böcking’s most renowned wines grow on the steep slopes, many of them extreme, up to 60% inclines. For example, Ungsberg belongs to the most distinguished vineyard areas. The composition of the earth, the angle of the sunshine, and the breezes from the Hunsrück combine to impart the distinctiveness of this vineyard. The agricultural methods follow a sustainable model. All the wines are fermented spontaneously with native yeasts using traditional 1000 liter Mosel Fuder casks. Only the sparest amount of sulfur is introduced at the time of bottling.
