Why We Love It:
Allow us to introduce you to Daniel Vollenweider – a true magician of the Mosel. Daniel has burst onto to the German wine scene with a bang – rolling out release after release of modern, delicious German Riesling. Quickly, this estate is becoming one of the most important addresses in the Mosel with a collection of outstanding, collectible and incredible delicious wines. Like liquid sunshine, these Riesling offer up incredible intensity, minerality, complexity and aging potential. No serious Germany wine collection is complete without a few bottles from Daniel Vollenweider.
Daniel’s recipe for success contains a short list of ingredient: very old vines, privileged terroirs in the best exposures along the meandering Mosel, modern winemaking practices ensuring super fresh and clean wines, and an unrelenting love affair with the Riesling grape – Daniel’s passion and love for these wines shines brightly in each bottle adorning his name. From his incredibly drinkable and delicious Kabinett, right through to some of the most glorious, unctuous and impressive Auslese, B.A. & T.B.A. wines we’ve seen anywhere.

“The Felsenfest is already a house number in itself, and that also in the 2020 vintage. Ninety percent of the grapes come from the Trabacher Schloßberg, a vineyard site that is classified in its tradition as a Grand Cru site. In the bouquet, which is still strongly influenced by the spontaneous fermentation, only rock flour and slate spice can be perceived at the moment. Superficial fruit is completely dispensed with here. The palate is flawless and straightforward with perfect mineral definition. The racy, almost wild acidity gives Felsenfest a steely and firmly determined character. A concise and style-defining Riesling in typical Vollenweider manner.”
