Julius Treis

Riesling Alte Reben

The small Julius Treis Winery with its 5 hectares of vineyards is located in the Moselle valley. The spectacular steep slopes here are mainly dedicated to Riesling and can only be cultivated by hand. The origin and the fine differences between the vintages can be tasted in every wine, preserving the unique character of each vineyard.

Normally the term „Alte Reben“ („old vines“) is used for at least 40 years old vines. But there are also vines that are 80 or even 100 years old – they all the more belong to this category. This Riesling is made of grapes from more than 40 years old ungrafted vines, planted in slate terraces. The spontaneous fermentation completes the wine.
