Small family owned winery with a long winegrowing tradition, 500 years in the hands of the same family, located in the very heart of the Mosel, in the village of Brauneberg, where their 15th century house that held the original cellar is still proudly standing to be the oldest building in the village. Since 1995, Marcus Haag the grandchild of Willi Haag, has been in charge of the cellars, where he produces a wide range of wines focusing entirely on the Riesling variety combining tradition with innovation. All the grapes are sourced from their estate, just 6.5 hectares of vineyards, steep slate-soil vineyards. Some of the vineyards sites are located on the “Juffer”, the name of the steeped slope opposite the small town of Brauneberg and overlooking the river Mosel, sites with an exceptional potential ideally suited to the Riesling grape, here the best vineyards are situated around the sundial (Sonnenuhr) making this one of the top German ideal locations for Riesling winegrowing. An excellent range of wines praised for its excellent quality-price ratio.
The Riesling Trocken is made from grapes sourced from the family estates own vineyards from different sites along the Mosel river principally from the village of Burgen, from soil made up of weathered blue and grey slate.

Notes: Beautifully drink on its youth but has the potential to improve up to 5 years.
