About the winery
Pristine Rieslings from the steep slopes on the Mosel. The renowned winery belonged to the Christoffel family for 400 years until Hans-Leo Christoffel looked for a
successor in 2001 and handed over the winery to Robert Eymael. After his retirement, Hans-Leo passed on his deep knowledge of Riesling winemaking to the next generation. Robert was determined to maintain the Christoffel style of wine. Controlled spontaneous fermentation in used Fuder barrels and no chemical additives are the keys to teasing out the final finesse from the podium and the spice garden. This is the old way of making Riesling wines, which to this day are unique in the world for their clear fruit, elegance and longevity.
