Pairings: Pairs wonderfully with spicy sushi, chilled shellfish, foie gras terrine, arugula salad, ceviche, tuna tartare.
Wegeler is a family-run estate with a deep sense of history and tradition. For four generations now, they have shared the same passion for Riesling, which is cultivated in 100% of their vineyards along the Rhine and the Mosel river banks.
The Rheingau estate was purchased by Julius Wegeler in 1882 and the Mosel estate in 1900 with the acquisition of a parcel in the Bernkasteler Doctor vineyard.

Perhaps the most intriguing and picturesque landscape in all of Germany’s wine country lies along the peaceful banks of the Mosel. The Mosel River stretches from its spring in the French Vosges along the Luxembourg border for almost 320 miles northeast, where it finally empties into the Rhine near the quaint town of Koblenz.
The Mosel is considered to be Germany's oldest wine growing region with production dating back to Roman times. It is also considered the world's steepest wine growing region with over 50% of vineyards situated at inclines of over 30°. It is home to the world's steepest vineyard, the Bremmer Calmont, which has an incline of 65°.
