Weingut Max Ferdinand Richter, Mosel

The Richter family’s goal is to combine progress and tradition in a harmonious way and with a reputation for producing some of the regions’ best Riesling. There is no doubt that they have achieved their goal.

Weingut Max Ferdinand Richter winery is steeped in history. The Richter family owns 40 acres of vineyards in the central Mosel area and has done for over 300 years.

Richter wines really are ambassadors of the cultural heritage of the unique Mosel landscape. These wines are quality driven, concentration is increased by severe pruning and even a green harvest in prolific years.

Vintage is later than most growers in the region and all picking is done by hand. The work in the cellar shows the same attention to detail, with traditional winemaking practices allowing the grapes to express their full personality, setting them up for a long life.

Vines are planted on steep sites of grey slate, mineral quartz and some areas of clay. Quality and concentration are increased by extreme pruning and a green harvest in some years. The steep vineyard sites of the Model Valley require meticulous attention and up to three times as many man hours to tend.

Mosel wine doesn't get much better than this!
