In addition to the interplay of soil and climate, the wine-grower’s vision of winemaking, from vineyard to glass, is a decisive factor. Eva Clüsserath strives to produce wines that reflect the characteristics of their sites and soils of origin on the palate in a light and elegant manner. Not muscular powerhouses, but rather filigree and transparent wines that are definitely a pleasure to drink. The perceptible sweetness that is traditional in Mosel wines takes a back seat; it can play a supporting role, but is not absolutely necessary.

The cultural landscape of the Mosel, with its unique microclimate, is marked by lengthy periods of sunshine, the good exposure of top vineyards, and a considerable number of extremely steep sites. The Devonian and weathered slate soils have rocky, water-bearing substrata. Slate provides optimal conditions for Riesling grapes. It not only retains heat, but also is also the basis of the mineral as well as spicy wines produced from the grapes grown in slaty soils.
