Haart Rielsing Ohligsberger Spätlese comes from the vineyards located on the Ohligsberg area, a very steep, south-west facing slope, rising above the banks of the river Moselle, near the village of Wintrich. The soil here is composed of hard slate stones with a blue-grey color. A soil that quickly heats up in the sun, giving the grapes a higher level of maturity.

The Haart family takes pride in being one of the oldest local winemaking families in this part of the Mosel. Weingut Reinhold Haart is without a doubt a privileged place on the Mosel’s riverbank, in the village of Piesport, in the very heart of the Mosel, where the Haart family has been producing wines since 1337, from grapes grown exclusively on their own estate in one of the region’s best vineyards.
Today, their 8 ha of vineyards on a diversity of sites produce a wide range of elegant and fine Riesling wines from the ripe fruit and its excellent terroir. Vineyards climb uphill in steep sites overlooking the river, exposed to the sunlight, and growing on slate-rich soils. Yields are kept low, and the fermentation takes place under cool conditions with natural yeasts either in stainless steel or in traditional oak barrels.
Their wines have a natural fruit sweetness and a great ageing potential.
The winery is a member of the Bernkasteler Ring, an association of the top wine estates of the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer river valleys and the oldest wine auction company in this growing area.
Piesport is a small town on a sharp bend in the Mosel river in the Mosel wine district of Germany. The town of Piesport contains the ideal sites for wine growing, a steep amphitheatre facing south. The name of the slopes flanking the village: the single vineyard site, Goldtröpfchen (Little Drop of Gold), is a splendid south-facing site protected from winds by its location on a loop in the river. The soil is quite complex, composed of quartz with stony clay and slate, rich in iron oxide, and it is famous for gently honeyed wines, with great fragrance and very mineral character. In this region, half of the wines are classified as great growth, while the other half are classified as first growth. The vast plantation across the river is known as Piesporter Treppchen.
