Upcoming Winemaker Events
June 26: Markus Molitor Vineyard
In 1984, 20-year-old Markus Molitor took over his father’s vineyard with a clear goal in mind: keeping the tradition of eight generations in mind, Riesling wines made under the Molitor name would be the same as they were 100 years ago — unique and extremely storable. His philosophy contains “80% aptitude, 94% Riesling and 100% passion”, according to Molitor.
Wines from Molitor show the potential of the Mosel region — texture and intense flavour paired with freshness and elegance.
September 5: Schloss Vollrads Vineyard
With a vineyard area of approximately 80 hectares (198 acres), Christine Höhne and her team concentrate on the cultivation of Riesling.
A passion for quality connects all colleagues at Schloss Vollrads — from the vineyard workers to the waiters to the salespeople who handle the collection.
Der Feinschmecker counts Schloss Vollrads as among the best vineyards in Germany.
October 23: Braun Vineyard
Fritz Braun is a typical “Pfälzer”: spirited, friendly and articulate. The gourmand conceals his weakness for the temptations of the kitchen and the wine cellar under a comfortably-cut polo shirt. Younger son Martin, born in 1981, got going in the family business in 2008. His responsibilities include marketing the wines in both domestic and international markets, customer care and the representation of the winery at trade fairs and events.
»I don’t sell drinks – I sell a little joie de vivre. Wellness for the soul, as it were.«
The family winery originated in the early 1970s from two businesses. The top of their range stands for uncompromising quality in white and red. Only the best hand-selected grapes produce unique wines for very special moments. The appropriate use of wood barrels makes these superb wines simply unique.
November 28: Rebholz Vineyard
Characteristic wines from a family business with a tradition going back to the seventeenth century — this is the recipe for success for Rebholz vineyard. And experts and wine critics from Germany and around the world applaud.
The idea for Rebholz grew in the mind of lumberjack Eduard Rebholz (1889 – 1966). For three generations now, the vineyard’s white and red wines have absorbed all they need from the surrounding nature. The results are wines with great character.
December 5: Franzen Vineyard
For six generations, the name Franzen has stood for a passionate connection with wine, the landscape and a high standard of quality.
Since the 1980s, dry wines have been the vineyard’s focus. Angelina and Kilian Franzen disclaim fining agents, and it is their goal to generate fresh, fruity wines with depth.
They dedicate the greatest care and attention to their work at the vineyard and in the wine cellar. Both of them simply want to get the best out of every year.
