Winery Böcking: on 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 entrepreneurial vision to lead the family enterprise into the future and reestablish its international following.

Visit the steepest vineyards in Europe

Böcking’s most renowned wines grow on the steep slopes, many of them extreme, upto 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 sustainable model. All the wines are fermented spontaneously with native yeasts using traditional 1000 liter Mosel Fuder casks. Only the sparest amount of sulfur are introduced at the time of bottling.
