The Villa W. wine manufactory arose from a 200-year-old family-run winery.
The Villa W. (for Würzgarten: spice garden) is located in the wine-growing village of Traben-Trarbach on the middle Mosel region and grows wine only in the best locations in the Mosel. The vineyards of Villa W are steep slopes. This ensures that the bulk of the work in the vineyard is done by hand. Thanks to this personal attention, the exclusively cultivated Rieslings grow and thrive particularly well.
The combination of Riesling vines and the unique slate soil –the distinctive terroir of the Mosel– ensures healthy, juicy grapes. On the steep slope, the shale attracts a particularly great amount of solar heat and releases it to the vines at night.
The cool natural slate cellar of Villa W offers the perfect conditions for the fermentation and maturation of the wines. The wines in the cellar of Villa W often ferment well into the spring. Due to the very slow and gentle fermentation, even the most delicate flavours are preserved. This is the only way to create premium Mosel Rieslings.
