Family winery making the best Riesling wines in the „grand cru“ super steep slopes in the heart of the Moselle.

The Selbach-Oster winery has more than 400 years of history behind it and records date back to the year 1600. Their high-quality Riesling vines have always been on the steep slopes in perfect balance between nature and human work. The winery has constantly been making unique Moselle wines that are popular all over the world. The Moselle is one of the best winemaking regions in Germany with an extremely long growing season. The climate is temperate but during the summer the weather has a Mediterranean influence as of recent years. Their region has a deep history, and the Celts and Romans planted vines here around 2000 years ago.

The Vineyards, the Sun, and the Soil

The setting and orientation of the vineyards create a unique microclimate that, along with the mineral-rich slate soil of the region, makes it ideal for the cultivation of vines. The sun shines directly on the vines at a very steep angle and all this allows the grapes to ripen properly. The wines attain an intense aroma that rightly expresses the qualities of elegant, crisp Moselle. The main varieties of grapes they grow are Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, and a little bit of uniquely elegant Gewürztraminer, and the best grapes make up their fabulous red and white wines.

All the work in their vineyards and wine cellar is done using sustainable methods that protect their vines and maintain the natural flavor of the wines. Fermentation of the grapes takes place in the cellar with wild yeasts at low temperatures to preserve the freshness of the wines. Most of their wines age in traditional oak barrels and have a minerality typical of the Moselle wines.
