Adolph Huesgen traces his family’s winemaking heritage in the Mosel back to 1735: he is the ninth generation. The family’s base is a beautiful Art-Nouveau house in Traben-Trarbach designed by Bruno Möhring in the early 20th century at a stage when this town was second in size only to Bordeaux as a wine trading centre. The Mosel itself needs no introduction as one of the world’s great Riesling vineyards. The precipitous vineyards descending to the River Mosel with their soils of mineral-rich, sun-warmed slate soils are legendary. Villa Huesgen has 65 hectares of vineyards planted. Since 2005, Adolph Huesgen VIII leads the tradition of his ancestors with VILLA HUESGEN and it’s passion for high-quality Mosel Riesling.
The Riesling grapes of this premium wine grow in the historic vineyard Enkircher Steffensberg that previously belonged to the Huesgen family. Alte Reben is hand-selected from 100-year old vines . The flavour is very intense and it has fabulous aromas. The finish is long and vibrant. A wine with a very good ageing potential. The epitome of Riesling.
