Eifel Franz-Josef

The winery is located in the municipality of Trittenheim (Bernkastel area) in the German Moselle wine region. A guest house is attached. It is managed in the fourth family generation by Franz-Josef Eifel. The vineyards comprise almost five hectares of vineyards in the top locations Altärchen and Apotheke (Trittenheim) as well as Rosengärtchen (Neumagen). They are mainly planted with Riesling (96%) and some Pinot Blanc (4%). The grape harvest is always done by hand in up to three passes. After a whole grape pressing, there is a cool and long fermentation with partly own yeasts, which lasts up to three months for dry wines. The wines are partly matured in stainless steel tanks and partly in barrels, 60% dry and semi-dry, and 40% fruity-sweet or noble sweet as Auslese, Trockenbeerenauslese or Eiswein. As a marketing gag on the bottle label, the owner vouches for the quality of the bottle contents with his fingerprint, so to speak.
