Mosbach George

The winery is located in the municipality of Forst lim German wine-growing region Palatinate. It was founded in 1920 by Richard Mosbacher (1898-1977) together with his sisters, who named it after his father. Already at this time the wine was bottled. Richard II. Mosbacher built up the estate in the 1980s into a top business. Today the winery is managed by his daughter Sabine together with her husband Jürgen Düringer. The vineyards comprise 20 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Freundstück, Jesuit garden, Pechstein and Ungeheuer (Forst), Kieselberg, Leinhöhle and Mäushöhle (Deidesheim), as well as Gerümpel and Goldbächel (Wachenheim)

They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (with 80% the most important), Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewürztraminer, as well as with the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Merlot and Dornfelder. The cultivation is carried out according to the rules of organic viticulture. The environmentally friendly measures include the renunciation of herbicides in plant protection and thus the protection of beneficial organisms, controlled fertilization and greening. In addition to the premium wines, which are classified as "Grosse Gewächs", a number of other single vineyard Rieslings are available. Other grape varieties and a basic Riesling are marketed as estate wines. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines and various noble brandies (marc, yeast) are also produced. The winery is a member of the VDP.
