Experience the steepest slopes in Europe

Located right at the banks of the Mosel, winery Kerpen has been run by the family for eight generations and it has been in family ownership for 250 years. Mosel is the world’s biggest Riesling producing region where the best effort is put forward to preserve the unique flavors of the region. The next generation of winemakers is already being groomed to keep up the family tradition of winemaking.

The queen among white varieties: Riesling

Almost 8 hectares of vineyards solely grow Riesling, be it on the steep slopes of Graach, Bernkastel or Wehlen. The most suited conditions for the queen of white wine grapes, Riesling is always maintained in the vineyards which give the grapes a wonderful balance of fruit and acidity, have low alcohol content and tremendous aging potential. The winemakers claim that winemaking is a rigorous process that takes a lot of time and effort.

At winery Kerpen natural winemaking is followed

The underground cellar is constructed such that it naturally provides the perfect condition to produce Riesling which are consistent low temperatures and a lot of humidity. The grapes are carefully handpicked and then pressed gently. The musts are then fermented in wooden barrels into dry, off-dry, sweet or dessert wines. The entire process is kept as natural as possible, nullifying influence on the fermentation as much as possible. Their winery specializes in white, sparkling and dessert wine.

Their wines of winery Kerpen are mentioned in all important wine books all over the world like Wine advocate, Eichelmann, Gault Millau, Wein Plus and Weinwisser
