Stefan Bollig is a fine example of the new generation of Mosel vintners. The family has been producing wine since the 17th Century, but new cellars and a new house have been built on the outskirts of Trittenheim. The total holdings of 4 hectares (10 acres) are tended by the family themselves. Their very steep sloped vineyard sites are composed mainly of blue and black decomposing slaty soil.
Stefan has been managing the estate since 1987, after completing his viticultural studies and practical experience in Trier and Bad Kreuznach. Dedications to the estate and costly investments have achieved a high standard of quality. Not many small estates would invest into such an expensive and modern low-pressure tank press, which is so essential for producing a clear and clean must — critical for the production of fine, aromatic Riesling. Careful vineyard management and gentle processing, from the vineyard to the cellars, underline the quality benchmark.
