Weingut Reef is in The Oldest Wine Region
The Reef family have been registered wine makers since 1773, it is fitting that they are also located in the Middle Mosel, Germany oldest wine making region. The great Mosel River has given rise both to the soil of the current vineyard lands (the riverbed used to run here millions of years ago) as we as the current terroir of the area, as the river both regulars, cools and reflects sun to bolster the grapes growing along its banks.
The Secret to Good Wine – Hard Work and Dedication
It is no secret really: the only way to make excellent wine is a committment to quality, and hard work. In the winemaking at Weingut Reef, this means putting in the toiling manual labor needed to protect and nurture the bunches and vines during the growing season, to carefully select and harvest only the very best grapes for the vinification process. The grapes are allowed to hang long on the vines for optimal maturity, and the careful crafting inside the winery is done at a long and slow pace to successfully coax out and integrate all the flavors and aromas in the juice. The result is a complex and long-lasting wine which grows and lingers as you taste it, leaving you yearning for more.
A Versatile Winery
The winery of course provides a range of different Riesling wines, but also boasts an exciting selection of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir rosés and a suite of interesting German varieties on the red side (have you ever tried a Regent or Adesso?).
The winery is located in the township of Osann-Monzel, alongside the Mosel and halfway between Piesport and Bernkastel.
