Selbach-Oster cultivates 21 hectares (51 acres) in some of the best steep slopes on the Mosel: 98 percent are planted with Riesling, 2 percent Pinot Blanc. Many of our vineyards are ungrafted, some up to 100 years old, and these venerable vines yield highly aromatic fruit from small, thick-skinned juicy berries.

Our focus on quality starts with low yields and meticulous care in each detail of working the vines, entailing an enormous amount of hard physical work – particularly in our steep slopes. This is especially true during harvest when we pick the grapes by hand in multiple passes in our steep slopes.

The fermentation, mostly with wild, indigenous yeast, takes place in our cold cellars which help preserve the fine, multifaceted aromas and the crispness of the juice. Half of our wines mature in big, old oak barrels (“Fuder”) that do not add any woody flavor to the wine, but let it breathe and mature. Depending on what Nature gives us, we produce Riesling wines that range from completely dry to the sweetness of dessert wines, from elegant and delicate to rich and complex. No matter what the degrees of dryness or of sweetness, all of our wines exhibit pristine minerality with relatively little alcohol – the paradigm of great Mosel Riesling.

The people who produce and distribute our wines do it with passion and diligence. They are our family and our employees. People that couldn’t be more different but are all sharing the same ideal: Exceptional Mosel Riesling

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
